Biography

The Dutch soprano, Johannette Zomer, began her studies at the Sweelinck Conservatory Amsterdam in 1990 with Charles van Tassel, after having worked as a microbiology analyst for several years. In June 1997 she was awarded her Performance Diploma.

Johannette Zomer’s repertoire ranges from medieval music through all music of the Baroque and Classical eras, including opera, but also Lieder, French Romanticism and Contemporary music. The prestigious Gramophone magazine said of her: “A new voice to watch”

Johannette Zomer’s concert appearances are also many and various. She has worked with Baroque specialists such as Frans Brüggen, Reinhard Goebel, Philippe Herreweghe, René Jacobs, Ton Koopman, Sigiswald Kuijken, Paul McCreesh and Jos van Veldhoven, but has also worked with conductors including Kent Nagano, Ivan Fisher, Marcus Creed, Daniel Harding, Valery Gergiev, Reinbert de Leeuw and Peter Eötvös. Further she regularly gives recitals with pianist Bart van de Roer, the forte-piano specialist Arthur Schoonderwoerd and the theorbo player Fred Jacobs and is also a member of several Early Music groups, including Compania Vocale, with whom she sang at the Ambraser Schlosskonzerte in Innsbruck and at the “Oude Muziek Festival Utrecht” during the summer of 1997.

In October 1996 Johannette Zomer made her opera debut as the page Tebaldo in Verdi’s Don Carlo with the Nationale Reis Opera, the Dutch Travel Opera Company.
