Bridgid Eversole

Instructor, Voice


Described by The Washington Post as looking and sounding “stunning,” soprano Bridgid Eversole has performed operatic roles including “Birdie” in Blitzstein’s Regina, “Fiordiligi” in Mozart’s Cosi fan Tutte, “Cleopatra” in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, "Nerone" in Monteverdi's L'Icoronazione di Poppea, “Mrs. Gibbs” in Rorem’s Our Town, “Gilda” in Verdi’s Rigoletto and “Minerva” in Offenbach’s Orpheus in the Underworld. She created the roles of “Athena” in Simpson’s The Furies and “Emily” in Martin’s Life in Death.

Comfortable in the concert hall as well, Eversole has appeared as soloist in venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York, and Washington D.C.'s Constitution Hall and The Kennedy Center. She has been the featured soprano soloist for works including Carissimi’s Jephte, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Fauré's Requiem, Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate, Requiem and Vesperae Solennes de Confessore, Handel’s Messiah and numerous Bach works. She premiered A Crown of Stars, composed by Andrew Simpson, in which The Washington Post noted she “sang with intelligence and skill, floating even her highest notes effortlessly.” She has been a frequent guest of Cantabile Art Song Project based in Norfolk, VA and recently premiered a cycle of duets composed for her and tenor Brian Nedvin by Stephen Coxe.
In addition to a dynamic performance schedule, Eversole has been on the music faculty at Frostburg State University, Garrett College, The University of North Carolina at Wilmington, and Norfolk State University. She is currently on the music faculties of University of Virginia and Piedmont Virginia Community College, both in Charlottesville, VA. Eversole received a BM from UNC-Wilmington, an MM from The University of Minnesota, and a DMA from The Catholic University of America, all in vocal performance.
