"The quartet of soloists--three of them already familiar to Knoxville audiences---projected solid vocal power and distinctly attractive phrasing marked by crisp diction for every listener in the theatre: soprano, April Martin, alto Diana Salesky, tenor Tim Pope, and bass Michael Rodgers."

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.
