About Rainelle Krause
Known for her absolute precision, fiery coloratura, and honeyed timbre, soprano Rainelle Krause is a versatile and compelling singer. She has recently been performing around the Dallas Fort Worth area in various community events and ensembles. Rainelle has also sung with Opera for the Young’s touring production of Cendrillon as Cendrillon and La Fée, Zerlina (Don Giovanni) with Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music Opera Theater, Galatea (Acis y Galatea) with Opera Nova Costa Rica, and Elisa (Il Re Pastore) with Heidi Grant Murphy’s Graduate Opera Workshop.
Rainelle has trained as young artist with the OperaWorks Advanced Artist Program in Los Angeles in summer 2013, Opera Las Vegas in spring 2013, and the Taos Opera Institute and Opera Nova Costa Rica in 2012. She has also been awarded as a finalist in the International Mildred Miller Competition in Pittsburgh, a Regional Finalist with the Metropolitan National Council Auditions in New Orleans and St. Louis, a semi-finalist with both the Licia Puccini-Albanesi and Gari Foundation competitions in NYC, and placed in the Classical Singer Graduate Division and the Harold Haugh Light Opera competitions. In 2014, Rainelle was invited back to Taos as a guest artist, performing in venues all across Taos and Santa Fe.
Some of her concert credits include Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem and Haydn’s Paukenmesse with the Amarillo Master Chorale, Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Indiana University Philharmonic Orchestra and University Choir, and Vivaldi’s Magnificat with the Northminster Presbyterian Church in Indianapolis.
Rainelle has performed with Fort Worth’s Casa Mañana in their production of The Sound of Music, as well as the Fort Worth Opera chorus in The Pearl Fishers, and will be performing in FWO’s La Traviata this spring.
From her hometown of Bloomington, IN, Rainelle holds a Bachelors of Music (2010) and a Masters of Music (2012) in Vocal Performance from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. She currently lives in the DFW area, and trains on aerial silks in her spare time in hopes of joining the circus.
