Tesia Kwarteng is a Ghanaian-American multi-faceted artist equally at home on the operatic stage, on screen and in the studio. She recently led and sang with the vocal ensemble Vox Noire on the recording of the original score by Terence Blanchard for The Woman King film directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and starring Viola Davis. Tesia had her first libretto commission titled A Sable Jubilee premiere at the Aspen Music Festival with the music composed by Jasmine Barnes and sung by Will Liverman. She also sang Hélène/Concepcion in a double bill of Faust et Hélène and L’heure Espagnole with New Camerata Opera.
Tesia will be singing the role of Berry in a workshop performance of Eat The Document with American Opera Projects at Coffey Street Studios. She will also be appearing as a soloist in Music as The Message: It Takes A Village at Broadway Presbyterian Church and will be the Alto Soloist for Handel's Messiah at the Church of Transfiguration.
“Tesia Kwarteng has shown her versatility over the course of this season with four completely different characters. Her voice is always solid.”
