Australian soprano Beth Peregrine is a dynamic vocalist thrilling audiences at home and abroad. Whether on the opera stage, in the studio, or as part of an ensemble, she has proved herself a young artist to watch. Currently based in Los Angeles, she began her career in her native Melbourne performing as a soloist and in early music ensembles, while she earned her degree in Theatre and Screen Performance from the National Theatre Australia.
Peregrine first garnered national attention as a featured soloist with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra in the motion picture Disgrace, and moved to Los Angeles to continue her professional career. For the last seven seasons, Beth has been a member of the Los Angeles Master Chorale, one of the most prestigious and award winning professional choral ensembles in the world. During that time, she has performed works ranging from the contemporary to the baroque, including the highly critically acclaimed Lagrime di San Pietro by Orlando di Lasso, staged by legendary opera director Peter Sellars.
The Los Angeles Times heralded the performance as “groundbreaking”, as well as “a major accomplishment for music history”, and she has continued to tour this work, opening the Salzburg Festival as well as performing in across the United States, and international venues in Australia, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Europe, Canada and New Zealand.
