Kingston, Ontario native Susan Elizabeth Brown has performed internationally at the Royal Glasgow Concert Hall and the Waterfront Hall in Belfast, Northern Ireland. A graduate of St. Lawrence College's Musical Theatre Program, she is now based in Ottawa.
Her voice has been described as “a remarkably pretty instrument, pure, ‘spinny’ with beautiful extension and a timbre that cuts through an ensemble without shrillness" (Natasha Gaulthier, Ottawa Citizen).
She is an artist with Jeunesses Musicales Canada, as Donna Anna in their 2017/2018 touring production of Don Giovanni. Her performance of the role in the Festival D'Opera de Quebec in July, 2017 was said to have “..a formidable impact” (Christophe Huss, Le Devoir). She was the 2017 soprano participant in the National Arts Center Young Artists Program, studying under internationally renowned Canadian baritone, Russell Braun. Other Operatic roles have included Mimi in La Boheme and Gilda in Rigoletto, both with Pellegrini Opera, and noted for their exquisiteness of tone and heartrending sensitivity of interpretation.
A powerful and empathetic communicator, with "stunning and effortless high notes" (Ute Davis, National Capital Opera Society Review), her Oratorio and Concert work has included the World Premiere of Clarence Lucas’ Dies Irae (Cantata Singers of Ottawa) in June 2017, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater (DOFM at Southminster), and Kevin Reeves' multi-media production of Carmina Burana set to silent film Ben-Hur with the Ottawa Choral Society and Seventeen Voyces, alongside internationally acclaimed counter-tenor, Daniel Taylor. She has recorded with Parma Records.
