Ema Mitrović has been called a “stand-out” on the stage. Recently she made her Birdland Jazz Club NYC debut with composer/drummer Tim Horner’s group, Time Circle. In 2014, she was a finalist for New Jersey State Opera’s Alfredo Silipigni Vocal Competition, a semi-finalist at the 8th Annual Peter Elvins Vocal Competition, and was a featured artist at the NJ National Association of Teachers of Singing “Festival of Singing” where she performed works by Bizet, Britten, and Mahler. In 2013, Ms. Mitrović was heard as Siébel in a full production of Gounod’s Faust with Hudson Opera Theatre in Middletown, NY where her performance was described as “idyllic” and “bubbly”. She performed Octavian in the final trio of Der Rosenkavalier with Opera Theatre of Montclair, the roles of Maddalena (Rigoletto) and Suzuki (Madama Butterfly) with New York Lyric Opera Theatre and was a finalist in the company’s national vocal competition, Martine in a rarely performed Gounod opera, Le Médecin malgre lui, with Utopia Unlimited Opera Company, and placed first in the advanced lower division of NJ NATS, “Festival of Singing Competition”. In 2012, she had the pleasure of performing the title role of Bizet’s Carmen with Concert Opera of Philadelphia, the Abbess and Monitor (Suor Angelica) with Manhattan Opera Theatre, Prince Charming (Cendrillon) and a scenes concert at Carnegie Hall, “Love, Passion and Betrayal” with NY Lyric, and sang the third lady in a quintet from Die Zauberflöte with Chelsea Opera.
Along with operatic and recital work, Ema has recently joined forces with composer and drummer Tim Horner in fusing and experimenting with crossing over genres of music, particularly classical and jazz, with hints of Balkan Roma folk music. Ema is no stranger to the jazz community having had the pleasure of studying with Grammy nominated artist Roseanna Vitro and Allen Farnham while at New Jersey City University where she holds a BM in Voice Performance. She performed a full program of classical and jazz works at Smalls Jazz Club in 2014 which included works by Weill, Elgar, Britten, Ravel, Correa, Bizet, and Brahms.
During her studies at NJCU, Ema was under the tutelage of Metropolitan Opera tenor, Anthony Laciura, who has gained critical acclaim for his portrayal of Eddie Kessler in the Emmy award winning HBO series, Boardwalk Empire. During her studies she performed the roles of Carmen (La Tragédie de Carmen), first witch (Dido Aeneas), Mrs. Gobineau (The Medium), mother (Amahl and the Night Visitors), and the third lady (The Magic Flute). Upon graduating, Ema was accepted into the young artist program, Coaching Divas, where she intensively worked on leading mezzo-soprano repertoire.
Ema is a regular cantor and alto section leader at Saint Vincent de Paul RC Church in Bayonne, NJ and a cantor at Saint Michael’s RC Church in Union, NJ. She is also an educator of voice, clarinet, and drums at Castro Dance & Music in Fairview, NJ.
