I'm a singer; I've been in love with the sound of the human voice since I was born, it seems. I've been performing as a soprano for over twenty five years. I sing a wide range of classical repertoire from early to modern. But my special interest is the music of the twenty and twenty-first centuries; that's what I call home.
You can learn more about what I do at susannarucki.net , including information about my projects and upcoming concerts. You can also listen to selections from my recordings there, too.
In 2008, I joined the faculty at the Department of Music at the University of California, San Diego, a wonderful place. Since that time, I founded kallisti. Our mission is the performance of modern works for voice, giving audiences a chance to experience this music in an intimate, direct way. Kallisti brings together graduate students from the program in Contemporary Music Performance at UCSD with distinguished guests. We've performed three fully staged chamber opera productions, and you'll see them on this website. We also do concert projects throughout the year. You can learn more about kallisti on my website as well.
The music of our time is full of unexpected beauty. Join me in the exploration!
Thanks for coming.
