Ryan Opera Center at Lyric Opera of Chicago in 2007.
Ms. Phillips recently debuted with the Metropolitan Opera as Musetta, as Mozart’s Countess and Donna Elvira with
the Dallas Opera and the Boston Lyric Opera, respectively, and in a role and house debut as Violetta with Opera Birmingham.
Recent recital appearances include the Vocal Arts Society at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. and at Carnegie Hall with
