Lucy Dhegrae

ABOUT:

“Vocal versatility and an omnivorous curiosity” (New York Times) are the hallmarks of vocalist Lucy Dhegrae, a passionate singer with a flexible technique that fits a variety of styles. Among her many accomplishments, Lucy has been featured in the Mostly Mozart Festival and has performed at Lincoln Center and the Kennedy Center. She founded and directs the Resonant Bodies Festival, an international presenter of boundary-pushing contemporary music vocalists.

PROJECT:

The Processing Series was sprung from a prompt to four composers: write a piece for voice with electronics, violin, and/or percussion that deals with an aspect of trauma recovery. This four-part concert series features works by Eve Beglarian, Angélica Negrón, Osnat Netzer, and Katherine Young, written for and performed by Dhegrae.

IN THE ARTIST’S WORDS:

“This project was made to help me regain my voice, by speaking out about something that previously silenced me. Singing is my profession and part of my greater purpose in life; in order to share my voice freely, I need to be able to sing from this place of former silence.”
