Kimberly Gunderson

Critically acclaimed soprano, Kimberly Gunderson, made her Chicago Symphony Orchestra debut as the soprano soloist in Verdi's Quattro Pezzi Sacri under the baton of Maestro Riccardo Muti.  Andrew Patner of the Chicago Sun-Times called Ms. Gunderson's performance "inspired," and John von Rhein of the Chicago Tribune noted her "proper sense of awed humility." Kimberly has also appeared as the soprano soloist in Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Chicago Sinfonietta and as a soloist in Schuberts's Mass No. 2 in G Major, Bach's Magnificat, Barber's Knoxville: Summer of 1915, Ravel's Sheherazade, Mozart's Mass in C Minor, and Fauré's Requiem.  Ms. Gunderson performed the role of Charlotte in the Chicago première of Ronald Perera's opera, The Yellow Wallpaper, and created the role of The Ingénue in VOX3 Collective's jukebox opera, night/music.  Kimberly has performed as a member of the Chicago Symphony Chorus for 8 seasons and has also performed with the Grant Park Chorus, Chicago Chamber Orchestra, Bach Week Festival, and the William Ferris Chorale. As an active chamber musician, Kimberly co-founded and performs in the chamber ensemble, Mode.
