Chloé Hurst (soprano) is an active singer, pianist and teacher in Vancouver. Hailed by Opera Canada as having “enviable clarity and precision,” her talent has taken her around the world.
As a VAM alumna, Chloé started her formal training in music at the age of three. From this young age until completing high school, her main focus was piano. It was not until the start of her undergrad as an opera performance major at UBC, when she started to seriously pursue her other passion, singing. Chloé then continued on to complete her Master of Music degree at the same institution.
Chloé has had the privilege of performing across North America, Europe and China in operas, concerts, recitals and competitions, including being a finalist on the popular Chinese television program, Xing Guang Da Dao. Past operatic roles include Adina (L’elisir D’amore), Micaëla (Carmen), Mimì (La Bohème) and many more. As a versatile performer, Chloé has also sung various works with orchestra such as Handel’s Messiah, Berlioz’s Les Nuit D’été and Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony. Shortly before the pandemic, she won first prize in the Canadian Division of the 28th World Music Competition.
Alongside performing, Chloé is the division chair of the Early Music Education department and also teaches private piano, theory and voice lessons at VAM.
