Australian Mezzo Soprano Amy Yarham is a Master's Degree candidate at Manhattan School of Music. Opera News described her as "charming, sensitive" and The New York Times wrote that "her mezzo bright and agile, led an excellent large cast" in the 2016 Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater’s production of L'Enfant et les Sortilèges (L’Enfant) conducted by the Metropolitan Opera’s Pierre Vallet and directed by Opera Theatre of Saint Louis' James Robinson.

Yarham made her New York debut in the chamber opera Albert Herring (Nancy) and in The Dangerous Liaisons (Victoire), both Manhattan School of Music productions. Her previous credits include Giulio Cesare (Sesto) and The Cunning Little Vixen (Lapák) under the baton of Maestro J. David Jackson with the Trentino Music Festival in Italy, Little Women (Meg) with Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) and La clemenza di Tito (Annio) with the Manhattan School of Music Opera Theater.

This past summer Ms. Yarham was awarded a scholarship to participate in the Chautauqua Institution's Voice program. Her previous awards include a full tuition scholarship to participate in the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School in Brisbane, Australia.

Because Amy Yarham’s operatic career holds much promise, Stay Thirsty Magazine is pleased to name her our SPOTLIGHT artist for Winter 2017 and to highlight her growing success.
