Charlotte Mundy is a soprano with an adventurous streak, praised as “mesmerizing” and “celestial” by the New York Times. Born in Toronto and based in New York City, her recent performances include David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion at the Metropolitan Museum, Howard Fishman’s A Star Has Burnt My Eye in the BAM Next Wave Festival and a program of world premieres on the Resonant Bodies Festival. She has given criticaly acclaimed performances of many of 20th century’s groundbreaking works for the female voice, including Pierrot Lunaire, Le Marteau sans Maître and in particular, Morton Feldman’s Three Voices, which she has performed in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Chicago, Toronto, and the Open Ears Festival in Kingston, Ontario.
Mundy is especially proud to “slay the thorniest material like it’s nothing” (WQXR) with TAK, a mixed quintet dedicated to visceral performances of new music. Their recent album, ‘Ecstatic Music,’ was named one of the 10 best classical recordings of 2016 by the Boston Globe and featured as Album of the Week on Q2music, and they have given residencies at Columbia University, New York University, Oberlin Conservatory, Tulane University and Williams College. She sings stratospheric microtonal lines with Ekmeles vocal ensemble at the Metropolitan Museum, Sacrum Profanum Festival, Skaneateles Music Festival, the Dimenna Center, Music Mondays and Gettysburg College. With Jordan Dodson, “one of the top young guitarists of his generation” (Performance Today), Mundy has performed throughout NYC and Philadelphia, on the Kimberton Chamber Music Festival, and at Montclair State University.
Mundy has performed in new theatre and multidisciplinary works in the BAM Next Wave Festival, Under the Radar Festival, the Park Avenue Armory, Saint Ann’s Warehouse, Abrons Arts Center and the Brick Theatre, working with theater makers Paul Lazar, Cynthia Hopkins, Katie Brook and Rachel Chavkin, visual artist Martin Creed and choreographer Miro Magloire.
Mundy sings 16th century mass settings every Sunday as a member of the professional choir of the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin, a visually and acoustically gorgeous space just around the corner from Times Square. She studied classical voice at the University of Toronto and contemporary performance at the Manhattan School of Music.
