Alabama native Susanna Phillips has attracted special recognition for a voice of striking beauty and sophistication. Recipient of the Metropolitan Opera's 2010 Beverly Sills Artist Award, she returned to the Met this season for a reprisal of her signature Musetta in La bohème. Other recent engagements include appearances in the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor with Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Minnesota Opera; as Pamina in Die Zauberflöteat the Gran Teatro del Liceu Barcelona; and as the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro with the Grand Theatre de Bordeaux. She will also perform in concert with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra at St. Luke's, and the Santa Fe Concert Association. Opera News observed: "Her phrasing and sound production are the first rank, and listening to her was an unmitigated pleasure."
In August 2011, Phillips was featured at the opening night of the Mostly Mozart Festival, which aired live on PBS' Live From Lincoln Center. Major concert appearances include the Marilyn Home Foundation gala at Carnegie Hall, and a solo recital in Chicago.
