Mezzo-soprano Toby Newman’s work spans the operatic, concert, and new music repertoire. Beyond her opera career in works of Handel, Mozart, Rossini, Verdi, Holst, and Bernstein, she works regularly with Meredith Monk, singing with her on multiple recordings and in concert at Carnegie Hall as well as many other venues. She has also appeared in the world premiere of Robert Een’s opera The Escape Artist at Disney Hall in Los Angeles. Her program for the New Museum questions the limits of the operatic voice, melding traditional classical vocalism with vanguard extended vocal methods and ancient and ethnic techniques.
