Olivia Schurke is a soprano from Maplewood, Minnesota. In May, she graduated from St. Olaf College with a BM degree in Vocal Performance. Olivia has competed in various competitions around the Twin Cities. In 2017, she won first place in the Thursday Musical Young Artist Competition, and has been a finalist in the Schubert Club Competition for three consecutive years. Her agile soprano voice possesses a rich, "bell-like" tone with mezzo qualities. Last fall, she appeared as Mad Margaret in St. Olaf Lyric Theater's production of Ruddigore. In the fall of 2016, she played Prince Orlofsky in Die Fledermaus. In addition to her solo work, Olivia flourishes in choral settings. During her time at St. Olaf, she sang with the St. Olaf Choir and worked at the Colonial Church of Edina Choir as a choral scholar. She is now based in the Twin Cities where she will continue her vocal studies to further prepare for graduate school.
