Thank you for visiting! 

I believe art is born from the heart of life's experiences. My objective with every performance is to truthfully portray a character, to challenge my perception of what it means to exist within one's world, and to understand the meaning of community. 

I warmly invite you to check back often for exciting updates and announcements.

Hailed by Opera News as "a stand out," and "a sparkling respite" [kcmetropolis.org], April Martin sings with a "waft of unexpected warmth" [The Aspen Times].

In January 2021, Ms. Martin won first prize in the NYC songSlam competition. You can watch her performance here.

She trained as a member of the inaugural class of Resident Artists (studying with tenor, Vinson Cole) with the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and apprenticed with Virginia Opera, Central City Opera and the Aspen Music Festival.
 

April has garnered awards from the Metropolitan Opera National Council, the Haefner-Williams and Charlotte Opera Guild competitions.
