Chicago-based mezzo-soprano Lauren Randolph recently graduated from Northwestern University’s Bienen School of Music under the mentorship of Theresa Brancaccio.

An avid interpreter of Baroque repertoire, she has performed the roles of Cornelia in Giulio Cesare, Amastre in Serse and Disinganno in Il Trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno by G.F. Handel and has appeared as a concert soloist in Cantata 103 and the Oster-Oratorium of J.S. Bach.
