Noted for her “serenity in performance” (Heifetz, 2019), soprano Anne van der Sloot is fresh in her solo career. She ignited her career singing as soprano soloist in Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with the Victoria Philharmonic Choir in 2017 and joined the Philharmonic choir again in 2019 as soloist in Mozart’s Mass in C minor.
Anne has been featured as the soprano soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the Victoria Civic Orchestra, Iphis in Handel’s Jephtha with the Heifetz International Music Institute in 2019, Handel’s Solomon and Bach’s Cantata 202 Weichet nur betrübte schatten at the 2018 VCM Baroque Oratorio program, and she continues to be featured in Victoria Baroque concerts, including solos in Bach’s Cantata 62 Öffne Dich, Lotti’s Missa Sapientiae, and Kuhnau’s cantata for solo voice Weicht ihr Sorgen aus dem Herzen.
Anne has sung in VCM’s Opera Studio as Erste Dame in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte and chorus roles in Purcell’s Fairy Queen and Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte. Her voice led her to win first place in the 2018 BC intermediate provincials, as well as numerous awards at VCM song competitions.
