    Expertise

    Soprano Tamara Bevard has been singing professionally for 30 years in a variety of styles from stage to studio. She has appeared in both the United States and Europe as a soloist with organizations such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Chorale bel Canto, Santa Barbara Choral Society, Junge Kammerphilharmonie Freiburg, Nova Amadeau Orchestra and Seuddeutsche Kammer Philharmonie.

    In addition to frequent solo work, she loves ensemble singing and has been singing in choruses her entire career. She sang with the Chicago Symphony Chorus for eight seasons, and is currently entering her 11th season with the Los Angeles Master Chorale. Her versatility makes her a sought-after ensemble singer and soloist with local groups, and she frequently performs new works by emerging and contemporary composers.

    She is also an active studio singer, and can be heard on numerous film and television soundtracks, including “Wreck it Ralph,” “Big Hero 6,” “X-Men Apocalypse,” and “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” and she is the featured soloist in Carlo Carlei's recent film adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet.”
