Fotina Naumenko

Fotina Naumenko, soprano, has been praised for her “radiant voice” (Boston Globe), described as both “angelic” (MusicWeb International) and “capable of spectacular virtuosic hi-jinks” (Boston Musical Intelligencer). Fotina enjoys performing a wide variety of vocal genres including oratorio, opera, art song, choral and contemporary music, both as a soloist and chamber musician. Festival appearances have included Ravinia, Constella, Olavfestdagene, and Tanglewood; her performances of David Lang’s just and Castiglioni’s Cantus Planus at the Tanglewood Festival of Contemporary Music were hailed as “a beautiful performance” by the New York Times and “a stunner” by the Boston Globe. Fotina was a featured soloist in the symphonic premiere of Sondheim on Sondheim with the Boston Pops in 2017, and completed the Resident Artist program at Indianapolis Opera in 2018. Fotina performs with award-winning ensembles including Conspirare, Skylark, Clarion, the Saint Tikhon Choir, PaTRAM, Alium Spiritum, and Cincinnati’s Vocal Arts Ensemble. She is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music (Rochester, NY), the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music (Cincinnati, OH), and the Rimsky-Korsakov State Conservatory of St. Petersburg, Russia, where she completed a Fulbright grant specializing in Russian vocal repertoire. Fotina serves on the voice faculty of Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA.
