Artist Reviews

"The Durham Philharmonic Choir and myself always enjoy having Brittany King as guest soloist. Her versatility, musicianship, and preparedness demonstrate a willingness to engage audiences and fellow musicians alike in every performance. Brittany is equally comfortable in the more challenging standard classical repertoire and the lighter fare – with vocal flexibility, sensitivity and range to balance with piano accompaniment or orchestral forces!"

Testimonial - Robert Philips, Durham Philharmonic Choir, Canada

“Brittany King’s soprano voice radiates energy and youthfulness. A charming singer with an engaging personality who excels on the concert as well as the opera stage”.

Testimonial - Wilhelm Theunissen, Head of Vocal Studies Elgar School of Music, Worcester, UK

"Brittany is an extremely versatile musician. She shares with us her musical performances, superb leadership and a big range of repertoire knowledge. She’s a great addition to our music ministry and we are truly grateful for her!”

Testimonial - Elaine Choir, Director of Music, Timothy Eaton Memorial Church & President of Choirs Ontario

Brittany King adopted a much straighter tone for the Pie Jesu and sustained it beautifully, making it sound much easier than it really is.

Canadian soprano Brittany King is an artist confident in an extensive range of styles, languages, and platforms. Described as “vibrant”, “angelic” and “first-class” by Charles Hutch Press, Brittany has appeared in traditional opera, oratorio, and recital stages in Canada and the UK and on digital platforms accessible worldwide.

The 2022-23 season saw Brittany stepping onto stages at Salisbury Cathedral as the soloist in Brahm’s Requiem, the York Minster Cathedral with the York Musical Society as soloist in both the Faure & Michael Haydn’s Requiem and a return to Coventry Cathedral for Coventry Cathedral Chorus’ Handel’s Messiah. Brittany launched a new recital program in a noon performance at Worcester Cathedral and performed as a soloist with the Stour Singers in Teleman’s Magnificat and Joseph Haydn’s Nicolai Mass.

Brittany returned to live performing in the 2021-2022 season with the Worcester Choral Society with Handel’s Messiah, the Gloucester Choral Society Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, and the Coventry Cathedral Chorus for Bob Chilcott’s St John Passion.  Prior to the pandemic, Brittany was gaining momentum as a sought-after soloist for UK choral and
concert society performances. Appearances included turns as the soprano soloist with the Newent Choral Society  Messiah, Stratford Choral Society  Christmas Oratorio (Bach), Elgar Baroque Singers – Worcester The Creation, Abingdon Choral Society – Oxford, Handel’s Dixit Dominus and Vivaldi’s Gloria, and Gloucester Cathedral, Vivaldi’s Gloria. Brittany was a featured performer at Elmslie House – Malvern for The Art of Song concert and for the Leighton Buzzard Choral Society Saint-Saëns’ Christmas Oratorio.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Brittany was active in creating digital music content for Timothy Eaton Memorial Church (TEMC) in Toronto. Collaborating with Director of Music Ministries Dr. Elaine Choi and Principal Organist Stephen Boda as soloist and quartet member, she covered repertoire spanning Handel, Mozart, Rutter, and a North American premiere by Hong Kong composer Ernest Hui.

In Canada, Brittany’s notable performances include Schubert’s Benedictus – Mass in G major (TEMC), Bach’s Magnificat (Durham Philharmonic and Orchestra), and Saint-Saëns Symphony No.3 (Toronto Concert Orchestra and TEMC.) She performed Orff’s Carmina Burana (Wilfrid Laurier University and MOTUS O Company) and Gorecki’s Symphony No.3 (Waterloo Collegiate Institute String Orchestra) and was a guest soloist during the pre-show at the Manitoba Opera House.

Equally at home as an operatic artist, Brittany debuted with Toronto Operetta Theatre as Pitti-Sing in Gilbert & Sullivans’ The Mikado (Sony Centre Toronto.) Other roles include Blanche from Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, Sister Genovieffa in Puccini’s Suor Angelica (Opera NUOVA and Oshawa Opera), and Despina in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte (Opera by Request – Toronto.)

Formerly based in Toronto, Brittany recently moved to the UK, where she makes her home.
