Greek-Canadian soprano Andromahi Raptis is beginning her final year of a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance at the University of Toronto, under the tutelage of Professor Lorna MacDonald. This summer Andromahi attends the world renowned Franz-Schubert-Institut in Vienna, Austria for an intensive five weeks devoted to German Lieder. In 2011 she was a National Finalist at the Canadian Music Competition and won the Provincial Finals of the Kiwanis Music Festival. In August of 2011, she sang the role of Ilia in Summer Opera Lyric Theatre’s production of Idomeneo. For Opera Atelier, Andromahi has sung in the chorus of both Don Giovanni and La clemenza di Tito, which starred Measha Brueggergosman. An Opera Undergraduate student at the University of Toronto, she has been an ensemble member in Les mamelles de Tirésias, Così fan tutte and La Fille du Régiment. Andromahi’s choral experience began with the Cantabile Choirs of Kingston in 2001, and since has taken her to the stage of Roy Thomson Hall with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Helmuth Rilling. Her Gilbert and Sullivan credits include the Plaintiff in Trial by Jury in 2010 with Victoria College Chorus and Mabel in the Pirates of Penzance in 2007 with Bottletree Productions.
