Soprano Evelyn Griffin is currently performing the role of Eurydice in Longwood Opera’s Orpheus in the Underworld.

Recently, Evelyn performed with the Salem Philharmonic Orchestra and the Paul Madore Chorale. Last summer, she covered the role of Sisa for KGB Productions and Opera Brittenica’s production of Noli Mi Tangere.

Evelyn started her professional singing career by singing in local churches in her home state of Indiana.  She earned a degree in music education from Anderson University.  While living in Washington, DC, Evelyn performed as a soloist and chorister with the Master Chorale of Washington, the National Symphony Orchestra, Sonus Cura, and in television performances on CBS and TNT.  Since moving to Boston in 2011, Evelyn has appeared in Longwood Opera productions of The Magic Flute (Pamina), Carmen (Frasquita), Rigoletto (Gilda), and Orpheus in the Underworld (Eurydice). She records as a studio musician with Futura Productions, and sings regularly in Boston-area churches as a soloist and section leader.

Evelyn studies voice with renowned Wagnerian mezzo-soprano Joanna Porackova and takes vocal coaching from Longwood Opera music director and composer Jeffrey Brody.

Reviews for Evelyn Griffin (née Boesenberg)

The idea of comparing different kinds of works by a single composer has potential; but in practice, the resonant interior of the church was a challenging environment for art song, though it worked better for an aria from Copland’s “The Tender Land” sung by Evelyn Boesenberg, and generally well for the chorus.
