Addie Rose Forstman
Originally drawn to singing through traditional Scottish and American songs, soprano Addie Rose
Forstman strives to bring the simplicity and authenticity of Folk music to the Operatic and Art Song
repertoire. In April 2019 she was the soprano soloist in Schubert’s Mass in G, with the SUNY New Paltz
Choral Ensembles, and made her National Sawdust debut in “First Songs”, a program of New York
premieres, presented by members of the Bard Vocal Arts Program, along with internationally acclaimed
soprano Dawn Upshaw. Earlier this season Addie Rose performed selections from Joseph Canteloube’s
Chants d’Auvergne with The Broad Street Orchestra, conducted by Noah Palmer, and was the soprano
soloist in Giovanni Gabrieli’s In ecclesiis, led by Maestro James Bagwell. During the summer of 2018
Addie Rose and pianist Edward Forstman, took their program of song and contemporary keyboard works,
“Flowers of Summer”, on a small tour of New York, Pennsylvania, and Alabama. Highlights from
2017-18 were singing Danica in Ana Sokolović’s Svadba, and making her debut with the Grammy-Award
Winning Albany Symphony, conducted by David Alan Miller, as Papagena in a retelling of The Magic
Flute for young children.
Addie Rose holds a master’s degree from the Bard Conservatory Vocal Arts Program, and bachelor’s
degree from the Eastman School of Music. This is her debut with dell’Arte Opera Ensemble.
