WRCMS Participant Feature: Malina Rauschenfels, soprano

Malina.jpg
Malina Rauschenfels is a soprano, composer and multi-instrumentalist transplanted to Cleveland after 11 years in New York City. Praised by the New York Times for her “compelling” performances and as “remarkable” by the Village Voice, she has also been commended by clevelandclassical.com for her “exceptional vocal range, strong acting abilities, gripping theatricality, and commanding gestures, both musical and physical.” Malina is co-founder and executive director of Burning River Baroque, with whom she sings and plays baroque cello. She is also artistic director of hūmAnómali, a collaboratively structured music ensemble which incorporates “extra-musical affairs,” such as dance, gesture and theatricality into its historically informed performances of music from antiquity to the present.

Equally comfortable with early music and contemporary music, she has performed with Quire Cleveland, Contrapunctus, Marble Sanctuary Choir, North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, Nuove Musiche, Toby Twining Music, Trinity Chamber Singers, Trinity Cathedral Choir, Alarm Will Sound and C4 – the Choral Composer Conductor Collective. She attended the Eastman School of Music and the Juilliard School for her BM and MM in cello performance and composition.
