Hailed as “powerful” and “ready for primetime,” Black American soprano Nina Evelyn’s mission is to diversify the classical music canon by promoting and performing the works of Black composers. Upcoming performances include singing the role of Monisha in Scott Joplin’s Treemonisha (reimagined by Karen Chilton and Damien Sneed) with Opera Theatre St. Louis and a concert with Heritage Chorale featuring the music of Florence Price and Margaret Bonds. In 2022, Nina triumphed in her mainstage debut with Boston Conservatory at Berklee as the title role in Floyd’s Susannah, a production that was named a “standout performance of 2022 in Boston” by WBUR radio. Previous engagements include performances as Contessa Almaviva in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro with Boston Conservatory, and Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen with Opera North. Nina is a recent graduate of Boston Conservatory at Berklee where she received her Master of Music in Opera Performance.
