Recognized for her unusual command of technical and musical capability, Emmie Arduino, soprano, is a senior who has recently completed her coursework at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, where she is pursuing a double major in vocal performance and music education.
Emmie Arduino was a member of the Dallas Opera Children’s Chorus for seven years. She performed the role of Second Genie in Die Zauberflöte with the Dallas Opera in 2011 at the age of eleven. She is a two-year member of the Texas All-State Choir – ranking first chair in every round her senior year. She has appeared as a soloist with the Tower Arts Series in Dallas singing selections from Vivaldi’s Gloria and was slated to sing the solos in Bach Cantata 140 (“Wachet auf”) with the Highland Park Chamber Singers before performances were canceled due to the pandemic. She has appeared with the SMU Opera Theater as an ensemble member in Trial by Jury and as Gertrude in Gounod’s Romeo and Juliet in their scenes program. She presented her junior recital in November 2020 and her senior recital in November 2021, including a complete performance of Bach’s Cantata 51 – “Jauchzet Gott in allen Landen.”
Ms. Arduino is currently a staff singer at Highland Park United Methodist Church and has been a featured soloist at other churches in the area. She will begin her student teaching at Robinson Middle School in Plano ISD under Kim Ahrens.
