Angelina Van Dyke is a Canadian lyric soprano specializing in concert repertoire, opera and chamber music. Having studied extensively with Joseph Shore after her BMus, Angelina has also trained internationally with Mikiko Hashimoto, Gioachinno Li Vigni, Giovanni Reggioli, Nelly Miricioui, Salvatore Fisichella, Felice Venanzoni, Johan Sundberg, Sten Ternström, Svante Granqvist and Filipa Là. In addition to performing, she inspires singers and pianists at her own Angel Music Studios, where her distinct praxis integrates heartfelt musical mentorship with an understanding of voice science, meta-cognitive learning and personal development.
Angelina's clarion voice is regularly heard in community performances of Messiah in Vancouver, and in carefully curated benefit concerts highlighting various music genres and subjects. In her artistic pursuit Angelina seeks to imbue the music she sings with an integrated understanding of the text, wedded with technical grace and facility that becomes a personal expression of wholeness.
Envisioning a cultural Renaissance in the Greater Vancouver context and beyond, Angelina partners with others to curate concerts that invite audiences to reengage their imaginations with the beautiful and infinite through sacred and classical music.
"In the Classical and Baroque periods, people had a view of a structured world where everything fit together. Singing or listening to sacred music from these periods organizes one’s mind to worship a God who is far beyond personal passions or interpretations. It is this beauty and order within complexity that I desire to communicate and inspire, and so ascend to new heights in apprehending and loving God."
