Heidi L. Waterman

Heidi L. Waterman (mezzo-soprano) has enjoyed a wide-ranging career encompassing everything from film scores to early music to modern opera, having performed as a soloist with nearly every major Bay Area ensemble including the San Francisco Symphony, San Francisco Opera, Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, San Francisco Bach Choir, and American Bach Soloists.  Recent highlights include Bach’s Christ lag in Todesbanden and Handel’s Dixit Dominus (Schola Cantorum), Mendelssohn’s Elijah (Marin Oratorio and North Valley Chorale), and the (small but mighty) role of a Muse in Philharmonia Baroque’s magnificent and well-reviewed production of Rameau’s opera Le Temple de la Gloire.  Upcoming concerts include return engagements with the San Francisco Bach Choir and Bay Choral Guild—in both cases singing the alto arias in Bach’s St. John Passion—as well as a program of music by Jewish composers with Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale.
