SYDNEY BAEDKE

SOPRANO

“Baedke’s voice is luminously clear and round. Her solid musicianship was evident in her delicately spun phrases and dramatically powerful climactic moments. Her singing conveyed the emotional impact of a Puccini aria while her three songs by Liszt displayed as sweet and pure a soprano sound as I have heard in some time.”
- Toronto Concert Reviews

ABOUT

Described as a "rising star to watch" by Opera Canada, soprano Sydney Baedke was recently named one of Canada’s top emerging musicians under 30 by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Sydney made her professional debut in 2019 as La Fortuna & Valletto in Tim Albery’s critically acclaimed production of Monteverdi’s The Coronation of Poppea at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, where she also covered Gilda in Rigoletto as a member of the Gerdine Young Artist Program.

Sydney recently spent the 2021 summer season as a member of the renowned Apprentice Program for Singers at the Santa Fe Opera, where she covered Tatyana in Eugene Onegin and appeared as Antonia in an excerpt from Les Contes d’Hoffmann in the annual Apprentice Scenes Showcase. This past season also saw Sydney star in the title role of Brott Opera’s 2021 digital, abridged production of Estacio's iconic Canadian opera, Filumena. She looks forward to making her principle artist debut at Opera on the Avalon in June 2022 as Beatrice in Heggie's Three Decembers, followed by an appearance as the soprano soloist in Beethoven's 9th Symphony with the Brott Music Festival. 

Sydney is a Regional Finalist & three-time prize winner at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and recently performed on the stage of the Civic Opera House as a finalist at the Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Ryan Centre Auditions. Sydney holds degrees in opera & voice performance from Rice University and the University of Toronto. She is on the roster of Dean Artists Management. Sydney is immensely grateful for the support of the Sylva Gelber Music & Weston Family Foundations.
