“If Music Be
the Food of Love...
Sing On”

Katrena Mitchell

Katrena Mitchell - dark lyric soprano

Vocal range: G3 to F6 (almost three octaves).

Katrena Mitchell possesses an unusual and beautiful timbre - a true soprano voice but with a dark and transparent quality that is naturally plangent. Because of its dark colour, her voice is sometimes mistaken for that of a mezzo-soprano, but the high range of her voice and the ease of the upper notes, as well as the comfort zone for her voice, make it clear that her tessitura is soprano.

Her voice lends itself to more dramatic lyric roles, yet is perfectly adept in bel canto and early music. Her coloratura has become well practised in tackling the death-defying intricacies of some of Mozart's more staggering soprano-soprano duets and the entire œuvre of Renaissance and baroque masterpieces written for equal voice of superb vocal control.
