Acclaimed for her "stylistic versatility, flexibility, clarity, range" (Halifax Chronicle Herald) and "gorgeous operatic power" (Vancouver Sun), soprano Heather Pawsey's career encompasses opera, oratorio, chamber, symphonic and contemporary music. First-prize winner of the Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition, in 2009 Heather was named an ambassador of the Canadian Music Centre – one of only 50 performers and conductors so honoured "who have played exceptional roles in shaping the Canadian music scene and raising the profile of Canadian music". Equally at home in 18th and 19th century repertoire, she is particularly skilled in the music of our time, with a number of world premieres to her credit, and in a broad spectrum of the world's languages.
"Truthfully one of the most aesthetically stimulating concerts I've heard in years"
"Wonderful performance and exceptional artistry!"
"An amazing listening, sensual experience"
"Truly innovative, magical, exhilarating"
