An up-and-coming bel canto specialist, Meagan Sill was praised for having “the most cut and sparkle without shrillness” after her New York City debut as a soprano soloist in Teatro Nuovo’s performance of Rossini’s Stabat Mater.
Recent performances include her debut at the Rossini in Wildbad Festival as Lucilla in La scala di seta, Lisa in La sonnambula at the Teatro Nuovo, her Washington, D.C., Kennedy Center debut as Cunegonde, in a concert featuring excerpts from Bernstein’s Candide and her Washington Concert Opera debut as Corphée in Gounod’s Sapho. She was also featured as “Soprano One” in Frank Martin’s chamber opera Le vin herbé with Wolf Trap Opera and as the soprano soloist in Mozart’s Vesperæ solennes de confessore with the Chesapeake Chorale.
Ms. Sill graduated from Indiana University with her Master of Music in Vocal Performance and an Artistic Excellence Award from the Jacobs School of Music, where she studied under the tutelage of Carol Vaness. Ms. Sill received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance with a minor in jazz studies from James Madison University.

Vaughn, Beatrice Benzi, Audrey Saint-Gil, Jennifer Larmore, and Danielle Orlando. She was also chosen as the Maestro Fabio Luisi Scholarship Recipient for the Solo Belcanto Festival in Montisi-Montalcino, where she studied under Chris Merritt.
