Undaunted by the vocal and theatrical demands of contemporary classical music, Amy Foote sings an expansive repertoire, ranging from leading roles on the operatic stage, world premieres of contemporary chamber music to stunning studio vocals for feature films and Bay Area Bands. Her voice is described as “sinuous [and] bright-toned…[with] an alluringly silvery sheen” (San Francisco Chronicle).
She recently performed under the baton of Chris Rountree to sing Gubaidulina’s Concerto for Two Orchestras with the Berkeley Symphony, premiered the role of Lydia in Kirke Michem’s Pride and Prejudice opera with Redwood Symphony and worked with two Pulizer Prize nominated composers, Kate Soper and Ashley Fure, to perform their pieces with the SF Contemporary Music Players and on the SF Symphony SoundBox series.
Amy began work as a solo performance artist in 2013, creating concert rituals that de-domesticate the traditional concert format for a more visceral and embodied performance. Her work is inspired by the purposefulness of liturgical ritual, the stillness of John Cage, the playfulness of the Fluxus movement, and highlights the chasm between current society and a more embodied and interconnected future.
