Mezzo-soprano Martha Anderson made her professional debut in 2012 with the prestigious North Carolina Symphony in Music Man. From 2012 to 2014 she appeared as Azucena (Il Trovatore), Mistress Quickly (Falstaff), Marcellina (Le Nozze di Figaro), Madame Flora (The Medium) and Zia Principessa (Suor Angelica), receiving multiple rave reviews including, “A true dramatic mezzo, Anderson has a voice that is large with an expansive and forceful lower register. Her clarion voice has an even quality from the top of its range to the very bottom and was able to cut over the orchestra no matter where she was in her range. Her voice was superb,” The EDGEboston. In 2014 she premiered the role of Mother in All Quiet on the Western Front with the New York City Metro Chamber Orchestra. Acoustic Levitation selected the performance for its “Best of” list for 2014 with the following description, “A stunning performance of Ms. Van de Vate’s powerful opera. The singers were bone-chilling.”
Since 2012 Ms. Anderson has been heard in opera, musical theater and multiple concert works. The “All Quiet” premier actually marked Ms. Anderson’s return to the New York Metro Chamber Orchestra. She first joined the prestigious group in 2013 in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, singing alongside Metropolitan Opera heldentenor John Horton Murray.
