Sherezade Panthaki's emergence as a soprano to watch has been fueled by superbly honed musicianship; a “radiant” voice (TheWashington Post); and deeply informed interpretations, “mining deep emotion from the subtle shaping of the lines” (The New York Times). A rising star in the early-music field, Ms. Panthaki has developed ongoing collaborations with many of the world’s leading interpreters including Nicholas McGegan, William Christie, and Masaaki Suzuki, with whom she will make her New York Philharmonic debut in the 2012–13 season in a program of Bach and Mendelssohn.
Highlights of her past and current season include Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Houston Symphony; Handel andBach with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra; Handel's Messiah with the Nashville Symphony; featured roles in Handel’s Solomon under Kenneth Montgomery, with the Radio Kamer Filharmonie in Utrecht, and in Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610 with the Yale Schola Cantorum; Poulenc’s Stabat Mater with Simon Carrington; Handel's Messiah and Bach's Cantata BWV 51 with the Portland Baroque Orchestra (Oregon); the St. Matthew Passion at the Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival; Handel at Carnegie Hall with William Christie and the Yale Philharmonia; a solo concert of Bach, Handel, and Vivaldi with the Rebel Baroque Orchestra; and Bach’s Christmas Oratorio and solo cantatas with Mary Greer and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
In 2011 she graduated with an Artist Diploma from the Yale School of Music and the Yale Institute of Sacred Music. She has won multiple awards as both an undergraduate and at Yale, including the prestigious Phyllis Curtin Career Entry Prize.
