"A much sought-after international star vocalist"
The Berkeley Daily Planet
“Hailed as an “earnest and grounded” (San Francisco Classical Voice) with a “heart-touching and plush sound” (Bay Area Reporter), Hungarian mezzo-soprano, Ágnes Vojtkó is known for her masterful presentation of early music repertoire. As a versatile and authentic artist equally at home on both the operatic and concert stage, Ágnes is excited to make her Carnegie Hall debut in Händel’s Messiah, her Eugene Opera debut as Flora in La Traviata and to return to American Bach Soloists for Bach’s St John Passion.
Recent appearances include Bach’s Mass in B Minor and St Matthew Passion with American Bach Soloists, Mozart’s Requiem with Connecticut Early Music Festival, Händel’s Messiah, and Bach’s Mass in B Minor with Music Worcester and Concora. An avid Bach interpreter, Ágnes has performed Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with American Bach Soloists, Mass in B Minor, St Matthew Passion and St John Passion with Dallas Bach Society. Other notable solo concert performances include Rossini’s Petite messe solennelle with Concora, Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde (Schoenberg- Riehn) at US Davis and Copland’s In the Beginning with Musica Sacra in Boston. Also, an accomplished ensemble singer, Ágnes has performed with Concora, Alchemy, Tactus and was a member of Schola Cantorum at the Cathedral of Saint Joseph in Hartford, CT.
On the operatic stage Ágnes sang with Austin Lyric Opera, Opera in the Heights (Houston), Ars Classica Chamber Opera and Budapest Chamber Opera.
Ágnes has earned recognition at some of the most prestigious vocal competitions, including the Nyiregyhazi International Music Competition in Takasaki, Japan, the S. Mercadante International Singing Competition in Italy, the International Händel Competition in Hungary, the Händel Singing Competition in England, the Dallas Opera Guild, and the W. Stenhammar International Vocal Competition in Sweden. Her experience in Sweden led her to one of the highlights of her career, to sing on a Gala concert at the Cairo Opera House.
Ágnes brings a diversity of perspectives and experience from her international upbringing. Introduced to music through piano and the Kodály Method at an early age in her hometown of Siófok, Hungary, Ágnes went on to earn her BM at Franz Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest. As a recipient of a Fulbright Scholarship, she moved to the US and now holds an MM and DMA in Voice from the University of Texas at Austin. Ágnes served on the voice faculty of Collin College and Southwestern University, TX.
