Nicole Warner, mezzo-soprano

 Hi, I'm Nicole Warner, a professional, classical mezzo-soprano.

I sing everything from Johann Sebastian Bach's Christmas Oratorio to Handel's Messiah to brand new works from living composers. I've sung solo on 3 continents...so far.

+ my weekly blog Open Intervals

Music is meant to be a part of our everyday lives--it marks the transitions, the special occasions, brings meaning to our gatherings, entertains and comforts us. It's an honor to share these experiences with you!
