Ivy Zhou is a professional opera singer and voice teacher in the Portland area. She moved to Portland in September 2016 to sing in Portland Opera’s outreach and education tour, got hooked by the mountain views, and decided to stay. Professional credits include Portland Opera To Go, the Portland Opera chorus, and the Princeton Festival. Ivy was recently the recipient of a Metropolitan Opera National Council Audition encouragement award (North Carolina District, January 2017). She is a graduate of Duke University (B.A. Public Policy 2013) and Westminster Choir College (M.M. Vocal Performance and Pedagogy 2016). When she’s not singing at St. James, she loves going exploring, attending live theatre, spending time with friends, creating art of all kinds, and eating great food.
