A soprano of vocal purity and resonance, Amy Little wields versatile vocal artistry that exquisitely lends itself to the roles of Mimi, Liu, and Countess, and equally as well to an orchestral evening of Marvin Hamlisch favorites. Her eclectic repertoire encompasses operatic and orchestral literature, contemporary art music, popular music, musical theater, and cabaret.
Ms. Little is pleased to join the Alabama Symphony Orchestra for Handel’s Messiah and Bach’s Magnificat in their 2017-28 season. Recent engagements include multiple appearances with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, including a holiday concert, a performance of highlights from Puccini’s La Boheme, and a performance with the Atlanta Symphony Youth Orchestra, Mendelssohn’s Elijah with the Huxford Symphony Orchestra at the University of Alabama, and Brahms’ Ein Deutsches Requiem with the West Virginia Symphony Orchestra.
Ms. Little has performed numerous roles with the Atlanta Opera including the First Lady in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, the Priestess in Verdi’s Aida, Inez in Verdi’s Il Trovatore, and Lula in Carlisle Floyd’s Cold Sassy Tree. Touring with the Atlanta Opera Studio, Ms. Little performed the role of Mimi in Puccini’s La Boheme and Love Simpson in Cold Sassy Tree. Other performances include Countess in the Peach State Opera’s production of Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, soprano soloist for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Pops Concert Series, Helena Symphony’s performance of Mozart’s Requiem, and the Atlanta Baroque Orchestra’s performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria. Previously, Ms. Little has been soprano soloist for performances of Handel’s Messiah, Beethoven’s 9th Symphony, and Mass in C, Dubois’s The Seven Last Words of Christ, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Saint-Säens’ Christmas Oratorio. She has also appeared with the University of Alabama’s Contemporary Music Ensemble, performing Alban Berg’s Sieben fruhe Lieder and in the premiere performance Jacob Miller Smith’s What Once Was, for soprano and ensemble.
