Opera Now Magazine in their article, “Written in the Stars” profiled Hilary Ginther in May 2016 as one of ten young American singers intent on taking the opera world by storm, calling attention to her “substantial and richly colored instrument”. This was followed by her Philadelphia Orchestra debut in Bernstein’s MASS under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, which was recorded by Deutsche Grammophon and released in March 2018, in commemoration of the composer’s centenary.
Most recent engagements include Olga in Eugene Onegin for Opera Omaha, Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia for Opera on the James, Adalgisa in Norma for Musica Viva Hong Kong, and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony in Santa Fe.
