Combining a love of music and drama with an academic approach to each role she prepares, soprano Madelaine Lane has appeared in recitals, concerts and productions in Georgia, Massachusetts, Michigan and Rhode Island.


Born in New York City and raised in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Ms. Lane’s vocal career began when her mother, a journalist, brought her to a local theater audition she was covering. Ms. Lane auditioned and was cast in the musical theater production, which began a lifelong love of the stage. She continued to perform in local community theater throughout her childhood and adolescence along with performing as a soloist at local churches. During her collegiate years at College of the Holy Cross, she performed as a soloist, as well as a chorister.


More recently, Ms. Lane has been a frequent soloist at the Cathedral of St. Andrew in Grand Rapids where she has appeared as the soprano soloist in Fauré’s Requiem, Rutter’s Requiem and Vivaldi’s Gloria


In 2014, she appeared as the Cousin in the Opera Grand Rapids’ production of Madama Butterfly.  This role not only brought into the perfect combination of Ms. Lane’s favorite opera and composer, but was also in her hometown. 


In May 2015, she sang La Maestra delle Novizie and La Cercatrici in West Michigan Opera Project’s production of Suor Angelica.  In August, Ms. Lane participated in the 2015 Savannah VOICE Festival as a Sherrill Milnes Studio Artist. As part of the Festival, the young soprano sang Elettra in the quartet from Idomeneo, in a scene directed by Fabrizio Melano.


A finalist in the 2015 Nicholas Loren Vocal Competition, this season soprano Madelaine Lane will make her role debut as Countess Almaviva in West Michigan Opera Project’s production of Le Nozze di Figaro. This spring, Ms. Lane will be featured in Park Church’s Great American Voices concert series in a performance of Richard Strauss’s Vier Letzte Lieder (Four Last Songs).


Last season, Ms. Lane appeared as Mimì in La Bohème with the Kent Philharmonic Orchestra.  Other highlights of the 2015/2016 season included a return to the Cathedral Concert Series where Ms. Lane was the featured soloist in performances of Faure’s Requiem and Górecki’s Symphony No. 3.  On stage, Ms. Lane reprised her roles as La Maestra delle Novizie and La Cercatrici in West Michigan Opera Project's Suor Angelica.  She also appeared in concert with West Michigan Opera Project performing scenes and arias from La Gioconda and Turandot. In June, Ms. Lane made her European debut at the Sankt Goar International Music Festival in Germany.


She is a student of Diane Penning Koperski and Nicholas Loren.  


“Opera is what I love to do – I’m so lucky to be a vehicle for this artform.”
