Martina Myskohlid is a Canadian mezzo-soprano currently pursuing a Masters of Music at Yale University, studying with Doris Yarick-Cross. In the 2018-19 season, she sang the role of Despina in Mozart’s Così fan Tutte with Toronto Lyric Opera Centre and Elmire in Mechem’s Tartuffe with Opera NUOVA. Since being at Yale, she has sung Cherubino from Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro and Béatrice in Berlioz’s Béatrice et Bénédict in the Fall Scenes performances.
Martina is a recent graduate of the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music where she received her Bachelors of Music in Performance studying with soprano, Monica Whicher. Martina began her classical music training in high school after several years of Musical Theatre training. She is a graduate of the arts-academic high school, Etobicoke School of the Arts, where she majored in Musical Theatre, gaining experience as a “triple threat” singer, dancer, and actor. She is also a graduate of the Royal Conservatory of Music Phil and Eli Taylor Academy for Young Artists, a program that provides advanced young classical musicians with exceptional mentorship and unique performance opportunities.
Martina’s passion also lies in art song, recital, and contemporary music. In March 2019, she premiered a work called Sanctus per soprano, controtenore, flauto e clarinetto, by French-Canadian composer Francis Patrick Ubertelli in Toronto, Canada. She made her debut with Opera Atelier that same season, singing Chorus in Mozart’s Idomeneo.
In the summer of 2018, Martina attended countertenor Michael Chance’s SienAgosto summer intensive program in Siena, Italy.
Martina played the title role in Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience at Opera NUOVA Summer Intensive in 2017. In both summers of 2016 and 2017, she attended the Vocal Techniques Workshop in St. Andrews-by-the-Sea, New Brunswick directed by Wendy Nielsen.
