Biography

Beth Quist is a multi-instrumentalist performer, composer, and singer, as well as the lead vocalist in the Las Vegas production of Cirque du Soleil’s KA. Her hypnotically beautiful style of singing combines the strong melodies and lyricism of traditional Western vocals with influences from the Balkans, Middle East, and India.

Quist—who began playing piano at age 2—has a 4-octave soprano voice, and in addition to piano plays santour (hammered dulcimer), dumbek, guitar, flute, and any other “toy” she can get her hands on.

In addition to being an celebrated solo artist, she’s an accomplished composer of original scores and has over fifty film, video, dance, and theater credits to her name. She’s also a seasoned session musician and instructor of piano, vocals, and doumbek at the Naropa Institute. In late fall of 2006, Quist will once again tour and record with Bobby McFerrin’s Voicestra, as well record some of her new original work. There are rumors that a few choice solo performances around that time are in the works as well.
