Praised for her sensitivity and style, mezzo-soprano Ingrid Johnson captivates from soaring high notes, to intimate, emotional portrayals that feel unapologetically authentic. As a performer, scholar, and discoverer, Ingrid is always seeking new adventures in music. She strides confidently and intuitively into the worlds of opera, choral music, and education outreach programs and is enthusiastic about making the arts available and accessible to everyone. From Bach, to Beech, to behind the scenes, she is a deeply passionate, hard-worker, with the drive and skills to thrive in the music world. 


Ingrid sings regularly with the Colorado Bach Ensemble and St. Martin’s Chamber Choir and is a regular sub with the VOCES8 Foundation’s new upper voice ensemble Lyyra. She also travels around the US as a Teaching Artist with the foundation providing workshops and musical development with schools and choirs. She has also been selected as a participant in the prestigious American Bach Soloists Academy in July of 2024. Ingrid is particularly excited to be joining the North Carolina based ensemble Servire this summer whose "Sing & Serve" mission strives to bring communities together through music. Her recent engagements include work with the Oregon Bach Festival Chorus, Aspen Music Festival with the Seraphic Fire Professional Chorus Institute, continued work with world premier recording projects, and a summer scholarship position with Quintessense in Albuquerque. In 2022, she joined the VOCES8 US Scholars Program for their season which included the world premiere performance of Christopher Tin's Grammy nominated work "The Lost Birds"), was a Fellow in Emmanuel Music Inc’s Bach Institute, travelled to Germany to join the chorus of the JSB Ensemble with the Internationale Bachakademie Stuttgart, and made her debut with Opera Colorado as a chorus member in Turandot. She was also a finalist in the Colorado Bach Ensemble’s 2023 Competition for Young Artists. 


She has also sung with groups around Canada and the US including Seicento Baroque Ensemble, the Montreal Bach Festival, Boulder Bach Festival, Opera McGill, the Church of St. Andrew and St. Paul, the Orchestre Philharmonique et Choeur des Mélomanes, and the Colorado Music Festival. 


Born and raised in Colorado, Ingrid is a recent graduate of McGill University where she attained a Master’s degree in Music with a focus on Early Music Performance. She is an alumnus of Colorado State University where she graduated in 2017 Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of the Arts degree in Music and a minor in Fashion Merchandising.
