ORIGIN CLASSICAL ARTIST
Linda Tsatsanis & John Lenti
Canadian-born soprano Linda Tsatsanis enjoys an active and diverse career. Hailed "ravishing" (New York Times) for her performance at the Boston Early Music Festival and blessed with "crystalline purity" (Seattle Times) Ms. Tsatsanis divides her time between early opera and concert performance. Ms. Tsatsanis began her career as a full-time member/soloist of Canada's leading professional choir, the Elmer Iseler Singers, working with such greats as Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir David Wilcox, Bernard Labadie and Helmuth Rilling. During this time she also enjoyed an active career as a freelance soloist and movie and television actor. She can be heard on various recordings by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation and on the new Norton Anthology recording.
John Lenti has appeared as a solo recitalist and chamber musician on lute, theorbo and guitar throughout the eastern United States, at the Bloomington and Boston Early Music Festivals, and at the Magnolia Baroque Festival in Winston-Salem, NC. Following undergraduate study of classical guitar at the North Carolina School of the Arts, Mr. Lenti held a variety of teaching posts and performed both in recital as a guitarist and lutenist, and as a member of the Whistlepig Old-Time String Band in concerts, hootenannies and festivals throughout western North Carolina. Following a season of dividing time equally between the various instruments and genres, Mr. Lenti made a definitive transition to the lute in 2001, moving to London towards the end of that year for regular lute study with Jacob Heringman and Elizabeth Kenny, returning to the United States in 2002 for study with Nigel North at Indiana University.
