Rhianna Cockrell

Rhianna Cockrell, mezzo-soprano has accomplished a promising start to her young career; in the 2018-19 season, she joined the Oregon Bach Festival as not only a member of their prestigious festival chorus, but also as the alto soloist in their performance of Bach’s BWV 34 under the baton of Scott Allen Jarrett. Notable engagements of the season also include a two-week residency with the Internationale Bach Akademie Stuttgart as a member of their JSB Ensemble, joining the NoVA Lights Chorale as the mezzo soprano soloist in their performance of Saint-Saëns’s Oratorio de Noël, as well as singing with such ensembles as the Washington Master Chorale and Chorsymphonica (formerly Advent Project). Further, 2019 not only sees Rhianna featured with the renown DC-based chamber group The Thirteen for their 2019-20 season, but she also joins the Master of Music program in Voice—Early Music, Song, and Ensemble through the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, where she will continue her studies under James Taylor.
