Renowned for her versatility and sterling vocalism, Shauna Fallihee has sung a wide range of repertoire with leading Bay Area ensembles. In 2003, Shauna made her Carnegie Hall solo debut with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Bernard Haitink in Beethoven’s Chor Fantasie. Shauna was the winner of the 2007 Mu Phi Epison Young Artist Competition.
A frequent oratorio soloist, Shauna has sung Monteverdi’s Vespers of 1610, Mozart’s Requiem, and Mass in c minor, Schubert’s Masses in Eb and Ab, Vaughan Williams’ Dona Nobis Pacem, and Bach’s Mass in b minor with San Francisco Choral Society under the direction of Robert Geary. Her 2015 performance of Mozart’s Vesperae Solennes de Confessore was praised as “stunning, with clear tone and artful phrasing” (Be’eri Moalem, San Francisco Classical Voice). Shauna has also appeared as the Soprano soloist in Mozart’s Coronation Mass, excerpts of Handel’s Messiah, Saint-Saëns’ Christmas Oratorio, and Fauré’s Requiem with Masterworks Chorale. Additional solo engagements include works of Schubert, Handel, and Mozart with Albany Chamber Orchestra and three arias from Lisa Scola-Prosek’s Dieci Giorni with the San Francisco Composers Chamber Orchestra. Her recent solo recital of Wolf and Debussy was hailed as “one of the most intelligently conceived recital programs of the season; and every aspect of its execution lived up to the ambitious goals of its overall plan” (Stephan Smoliar, SF Examiner).
