Ami Bouterse

Ami Bouterse has performed soprano favorites in opera and musical theater with such venues as Skylight Opera Theatre, Ash Lawn Opera Festival, Opera Theater of Pittsburgh, New York Japan Society, Operafestival di Roma, Dorian Opera Theater, Milwaukee Opera Theater and on several occasions with Racine Symphony. An advocate for outreach, Ms. Bouterse starred in "The One-Stop Opera Shop," which premiered at Skylight Music Theatre's Cabaret Series on behalf of Milwaukee Opera Theatre. Recent solo concert performances include Mozart arias with Kenosha Symphony, Beethoven’s Mass in C with Waukesha Choral Union, Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass, Verdi’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Schubert’s Mass in G, Mozart’s Requiem and Mozart’s Litany for the Altar of the Blessed Sacrament for which Milwaukee Journal Sentinel critic Tom Strini claimed “The sweetness and gentility of Bouterse’s singing calmed the ear.” Ms. Bouterse has had the privilege of premiering a song cycle of poems by Ruben Darío by Dr. Jorge Muñiz at an Atlantic Center for the Arts sponsored festival in Florence, Italy; she also appeared with the Euclid Quartet performing Dr. Muñiz’ Lamentations of the Prophet Jeremiah at a College Music Society National Conference Composers Concert. Due to her Norwegian heritage by birth and Spanish heritage by marriage, Norwegian and Spanish art song are influential in her recital programming. A recent program highlighting both was presented at Indiana University South Bend.
