As Fiordiligi, Ketti Jane Muschler commanded the stage with dramatic intensity and pipes to match, meeting the test of steadfastness in “Come scoglio”
Boston Musical Intelligencer, April 2019
Soprano Ketti Jane Muschler is a versatile performer of classical vocal works in stage productions, concerts, and recordings.
Currently based in Cambridge, Mass., Ketti is a regular guest of the choirs at Harvard University. Recent appearances include Brahms Ein Deutsches Requiem soprano solo for the University Choir, Jonathan Dove’s concert opera Tobias and the Angel (Sara) at Memorial Church, and Orff Carmina Burana soprano solo for the Summer Chorus. This month, she will return to the University Choir to cover the title role of Gluck’s Alceste. She will also join the combined Harvard-Radcliffe Chorus for sacred works of Gounod & Fauré this December.
In Greater Boston, Ketti has been featured in recent productions of Gounod’s Faust, Argento’s Postcard from Morocco, and the lovingly-modified Puccini classic La “Femme” Bohème, in which she made her ‘baritone’ role debut as Marcello. Her upcoming engagements for the end of 2018 include Hansel & Gretel with Opera51 in Concord and a solo lieder recital for the Quietside Music Festival in Maine.
Ketti holds an MM in Voice Performance from the Longy School of Music and a BM in Music Education from Westminster Choir College. Her recent appearances outside the Boston area have included SongFest and OperaWorks (Los Angeles), the Miami Music Festival (Miami), the international premiere tour of an original opera based on writings of Jane Austen. Ketti’s current season recordings include choral works of Praetorius, Schütz, & Telemann in Germany with Boston’s Canto Armonico early music ensemble (album scheduled for release in 2019), as well as two solo song cycle premieres in Cambridge.
Ketti is also respected as a coach and clinician, and is a frequent guest of notable American music festivals. Current season engagements include a workshop on freelance careers for undergraduates at the Sigma Alpha Iota Triennial Convention (Arizona, July 2018) and a guest conductor contract with Montreat Worship & Music Conference (North Carolina, June 2019). She is the founder of the Mixtape Recital Series, a new performance workshop that encourages classical musicians to “premiere without fear!”, developing rich concert programs out of unfamiliar repertoire. Ketti holds Sigma Alpha Iota’s Sword of Honor Collegiate Award (2010) and Rose of Honor Alumnae Award (2018) “for outstanding musicianship, scholarship, and fraternity service.”
