New York based soprano Anneliese Klenetsky is a recent graduate of The Juilliard School, receiving her Bachelor's of Music under the tutelage of Sanford Sylvan. There, she appeared as the vehement and impassioned Amaranta in Haydn's La fedeltà premiata and Un Pâtre in Ravel's L’enfant et les sortilèges. This past summer she made her Chautauqua Music Festival debut as Governess in Britten's hauntingly exquisite The Turn of the Screw, based on the novel by Henry James. She was also featured in a concert of arias with the Chautauqua Music Festival Orchestra under the baton of Timothy Muffitt. Equally at home in the world of oratorio, Ms. Klenetsky recently performed Bach's Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut BWV 199.
A lover of new music, Ms. Klenetsky has paved a path for herself in the electrifying world of 21st century music. Performing numerous world premieres by contemporary American composers, this past season Ms. Klenetsky was honored to be part of the newly formed, interdisciplinary laboratory for developing brand new opera known as The Opera-Composer Collaborative Project, also called OperaComp. Ms. Klenetsky has cultivated a long-standing relationship with composer Jake Landau which has resulted in many world premiers: Streetlight, a song cycle about a reverse-love story set to lyrics by beloved singer-songwriter Joni Mitchell, You always take vacations, a song cycle for voice and vocoder and Les danseuses de Pigalle, a ballet inside a crime scene featuring a musical blend of smoky cabaret and live-processed electronics with a delicately alluring classical sound at New York Live Arts. Ms. Klenetsky also premiered Theo Chandler's Songs for Brooches in Alice Tully Hall with the Juilliard Orchestra.
Ms. Klenetsky was featured in a live-streamed masterclass with Emmanuel Villaume at The Juilliard School this past season. She has also appeared in master classes with John Fischer, Dalton Baldwin, Joan Dornemann, Sherrill Milnes and Plácido Domingo.
Ms. Klenetsky started her artistic and musical path in her hometown of Edison, New Jersey with teacher Li-chan Maxham. In 2012, she was accepted into the prestigious Juilliard Precollege Division under Lorraine Nubar. During her two years with the program, she made her Alice Tully Hall debut with the Juilliard Precollege Symphony and was a finalist in The National Youngarts Foundation, where she performed at the New World Center in Miami. There she was nominated as a Presidential Scholar of the Arts. Ms. Klenetsky will be returning to Juilliard for her graduate studies this fall.
