In growing demand as an interpreter of new music, Brooklyn-based soprano Eliza Bagg has worked closely on projects with a number of prominent and emerging composers. Recent and upcoming engagements include John Zorn's Commedia dell'Arte at the Guggenheim, a presentation of Olga Bell's Krai at the River to River festival, a workshop of Amy Beth Kirsten's Quixote with Howl and Sandbox Percussion, a workshop with experimental musician Tim Hecker at EMPAC, and originating a role in the pre-premiere of Judd Greenstein's opera A Marvelous Order. Eliza was a fellow at the 2015 Bang on a Can Summer Festival where she joined the Bang on a Can All-Stars in a performance of Michael Gordon’s opera Van Gogh, and was recently presented on both the MATA Festival and Interval Series performing new chamber works with instrumentalists Ashley Bathgate, Vicky Chow and Dan Lippel. Also dedicated to singing Baroque and Renaissance music, Eliza recently appeared with the St. Andrew Chorale and Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Bach's St. John Passion. She performs frequently with a number of vocal ensembles including Conspirare, Lorelei Ensemble and the Choir of Trinity Wall Street. This fall, her indie-pop project Pavo Pavo, whose music Stereogum says "sounds like it was beamed down from a glimmering utopian future," will release its debut album on Bella Union. Eliza graduated in 2012 with a BA in Music from Yale University.
