Robin Bier

Hailed as “a Ferrier in waiting” (The Rehearsal Studio), Robin Bier has been praised for her “robust, shapely contralto,” (San Francisco Chronicle) and “mysterious, dark hue and sauntering presence” (San Francisco Classical Voice). She has recorded Striggio Mass in 40 Parts with I Fagiolini (Decca) and Bach St. John Passion with the Yorkshire Baroque Soloists (Signum Classics) and recent solo appearances include Bach Mass in B Minor and the role of Clori in Handel’s Parnasso in Festa at the American Bach Soloists Academy.  Robin holds degrees in voice and ensemble singing from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and the University of York, and is artistic co-director of solo-voice early music ensemble Les Canards Chantants.  She is a current student of Christian Immler, and is based in Philadelphia, PA, where she is a staff singer at St. Clements Church and coaches the choristers of Bryn Athyn Cathedral.
