Polish born mezzo-soprano Magdalena Wór is a winner, finalist and recipient of many prestigious national and international competitions and awards, including Marcello Giordani and Moniuszko International Vocal Competitions, Marcella Kochanska Sembrich National Vocal Competition, and Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition, among others. Ms. Wór is an alumna of the Washington National Opera’s Domingo-Cafritz and San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Programs. Over the last several seasons Ms. Wór has worked with The Metropolitan Opera, the National Symphony Orchestra and the National Philharmonic in Washington, DC, the Washington National Opera, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Baltic Opera, Seattle Symphony, Washington Concert Opera, Atlanta Opera, Virginia Opera, Palm Beach Opera, Memphis Symphony Orchestra, Richmond Symphony Orchestra, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, and New Trinity Baroque, among others.
Magdalena’s opera roles include those of Carmen, Suzuki, Cherubino, Maddalena, Tisbe, Enrichetta, Orfeo, Rosina, and Cenerentola, and her orchestral repertoire includes Bach Mass in B Minor, Verdi Requiem, Mozart Requiem Handel Messiah, Mahler Symphony No. 2 “Resurrection”, Vivaldi Gloria, Bach Magnificat, Beach Mass in Eb Major, Grieg Peer Gynt, and Bach Johannes-Passion, among others.
Equally comfortable in Opera, Symphony and Chamber works, Ms. Wór is often praised by music critics and fans alike for the rich color of her voice, vocal flexibility- which allows her to sing low and high mezzo repertoire, from Baroque through 21st century- and for her complete devotion to both the music and the text at hand.
