Shawnette Sulker, soprano

“The icing on the cake was the vocal soloists Shawnette Sulker and Leon Williams. Also the soprano soloist in Mendelssohn’s cantata, Sulker sang with enchanting vocal splendor and excellent comprehension, and she made a gorgeous and touching Bess. ”
- Birgit Hendrich, Leipziger Volkszeitung

“…Shawnette Sulker is polished and poised as Rosabella, the object of Tony’s affection… the sound is delightful, as in Sulker’s imploring ‘Aren’t You Glad?’ ”
- Elizabeth Warnimont, The Benicia Herald

“Bidding her to ‘shake the cloud from off your brow,’ Belinda was sung by Shawnette Sulker with a high and nimble soprano… I heard Sulker star as Olympia in Tales of Hoffmann with San Francisco Lyric Opera (2007), and her high clarity and range — she played all four women protagonists—was formidable.”
- Adam Broner, Repeat Performances

“I can’t leave the discussion of Dido without mentioning soprano Shawnette Sulker who played the role of Belinda, Queen Dido’s confidante. She filled her major singing role in Act I with her lovely voice. I still remember her charming performance here in Orfeo ed Euridice in 2009.

- Janos Gereben, The Examiner
September 25, 2007

- Gary Scott, KDHX St. Louis
July 24, 2007

“If it is possible for there to be a show-stopper in a chorale concert, it was Sulker. After some impressive dramatic singing in the conventional soprano range in the “Requiem,” she surprised with a comedic flight of fancy into the vocal stratosphere in the “Glitter and Be Gay.” This native of Guyana held the audience breathless. I don’t believe I have ever heard a more beautiful, more controlled or better-placed coloratura voice. She’s a real, and confident, charmer.”
- Keith Kreitman, Oakland Tribune
October 27, 2005

- Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

- Richard Bammer, The Reporter

- Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle
November 19, 2003

- Keith Kreitman, San Mateo County Times
February 18, 2003

February 23, 2002
