Charlotte Mundy


Charlotte Mundy is a “mesmerizing ... preternaturally focused Canadian soprano” (The New York Times) who is most at home in the worlds of new chamber music and music theatre. Her recent performances include a memorized, staged version of David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion at the Metropolitan Museum; Televiolet Theatre’s Power of Emotion at Abrons Arts Center; Howard Fishman’s A Star Has Burnt My Eye at the BAM Next Wave Festival, Skidmore College, and Castleton University; Julius Eastman’s Macle at the Kitchen; and Olivier Messiaen’s Poemes pour Mí with the Brooklyn Art Song Society.

Mundy has made plays, dances, and installations with theater makers Paul Lazar, Cynthia Hopkins, Katherine Brook, Rachel Chavkin, Martin Creed, and Miro Magloire. She “slays the thorniest material like it’s nothing” (WQXR) with TAK ensemble, who recently premiered works by Ashkan Behzadi, David Bird, and Taylor Brook in Toronto and Montreal. Her debut album, Ecstatic Music, was listed as a top 10 classical recording of 2016 by the Boston Globe. Mundy also sings with Ekmeles vocal ensemble in venues across the U.S. and has given critically acclaimed performances of many of the twentieth century’s groundbreaking works for the female voice, including Pierrot Lunaire, Le Marteau sans Maître and Morton Feldman’s Three Voices.
