Coloratura soprano Eileen Huang discovered her love of singing as a young student at Juilliard, when participation in the chorus was mandatory for pianists.
Eileen was one of eight vocalists featured during the inaugural season of the Nahant Music Festival in 2014. She returned to the festival in 2015, performing alongside members of the Boston Camerata and Emmanuel Music. She created the title role in the premiere of Sleeping Beauty by Francine Trester to critical acclaim.
As Princess Aurora, Eileen Huang did vocal justice as the sleepy star of the show with a fine sense of humor and style.

Since joining the Tanglewood Festival Chorus in 2006, Eileen performed more than 100 concerts with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Boston Pops under world-renown conductors, including James Levine, Seiji Ozawa, Sir Colin Davis, Bernard Haitink, and Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos.
Eileen participated in the BSO’s Grammy award-winning recording of Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé and had the honor of singing at Senator Edward Kennedy’s funeral. She has been a concert soloist at the Tanglewood Music Festival and Symphony Hall and covered the soprano solo for the world premiere of William Bolcom’s Eighth Symphony. She also appeared as soprano soloist with the Wellesley Choral Society in an all-Mozart program in 2014.
Eileen currently studies with Jayne West and previously studied with Kerry Deal.
