Ashley Mulcahy, Mezzo-soprano
Ashley Mulcahy recently moved to the Boston area after completing her MM in the Voxtet Program at the Yale School of Music and Institute of Sacred Music. At Yale, Ashley studied with James Taylor and had the opportunity to work with many internationally renowned conductors, including Nicholas McGegan, Masaaki Suzuki, David Hill, and Simon Carrington, and performed at numerous venues including Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, and the Leipzig Gewandhaus. Favorite performances include alto solos in Handel’s Alexander’s Feast, Bach’s St. John Passion, and Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass with Juilliard 415 and the title role in A. Scarlatti’s Caino, ovvero il primo omicidio.
In the 2019-2020 season, Ashley is especially looking forward to performances with New York State Baroque and Music at Marsh Chapel, where she sings regularly as a chorister and soloist under the direction of Scott Jarrett. Ashley also looks forward to performances with Lyracle, an ensemble she co-directs with gambist James Perretta, dedicated to repertoire for voice and viol family instruments: http://www.lyraclemusic.com/.
Ashley was a Young Artist at the 2017 Boston Early Music Festival and earned a BA in Italian and a BM in vocal performance from the University of Michigan, where she studied with Carmen Pelton.
