BIOGRAPHY

“Kayleen Sánchez' wonderfully sensitive interpretations evoke the full sway of Sappho’s fervent, impassioned imagination. Indeed, Sánchez' keen technical virtuosity manages to capture the finely shaded gradations of emotion that all three song cycles draw up from the well of human experience. Listen closely and you’ll discover that, long after the final syllable is sung, her voice still thrills along the spine.”

-  Sherod Santos

"Soprano Kayleen Sánchez has the perfect voice, pure and unshakably direct in delivery.... [her] purity of voice and total control of her instrument is utterly remarkable...."

-  Colin Clarke

"Sanchez has a pure, lyric voice which she uses with imagination."

-  Henry Fogel

Kayleen Sánchez is an active performer, recording artist, and pedagogue. She is a founding member of the lute song duo BEDLAM. Recent BEDLAM engagements include the Phoenix Early Music Society, Pegasus Early Music, and the Rochester Early Music Festival. BEDLAM has been broadcast on Rochester’s WXXI, WWFM’s “Well-Tempered Baroque”, South Dakota Public Broadcasting, and Arizona PBS. BEDLAM released its debut album, BEDLAM (Athyr Records) in 2015, and their latest album, Died for Love (Soundset Recordings) was released in June of 2017. BEDLAM’s active touring schedule can found on their website at www.bedlamearlymusic.com.

 

American composer David M. Gordon praised her performance of his music as “deeply moving and extraordinarily precise,” and dedicated a large-scale song cycle, “Mysteria Incarnationis,” to Sánchez and her husband, pianist Paul Sánchez (CD release TBA). Kayleen is also featured on the CD Magus Insipiens (Soundset Recordings, 2016), performing song cycles composed by Paul Sánchez, and appears on the CDs West Meets East (Albany Records) and Music of George Morey (label TBA). She also recorded Schubert’s Schwanengesang with pianist Johnandrew Slominski on a Viennese-style fortepiano. Their recording has been released on the Soundset label, and features ornamentation and other historically-informed performance practices. 

 

Sánchez received her Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in Vocal Performance and Literature from the Eastman School of Music. She is on voice faculty at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC.
