Praised for her "clear, bright voice" (The New York Times) and "artistry that belies her young years" (Kansas City Metropolis), soprano Estelí Gomez is quickly gaining recognition as a stylish interpreter of early and contemporary repertoires. In January 2014 she was awarded a Grammy with contemporary octet Roomful of Teeth, for best chamber music/small ensemble performance; in November 2011 she received first prize in the Canticum Gaudium International Early Music Vocal Competition in Poznan, Poland. An avid performer of early and new music, Estelí can be heard on the Juno-nominated recording Salsa Baroque with Montreal-based Ensemble Caprice, as well as Roomful of Teeth's self-titled debut album, for which composer Caroline Shaw was awarded the 2013 Pulitzer Prize.
Highlights of 2014-5 include soprano solos on Conspirare’s newest CD in Robert Kyr’s Songs of the Soul (Harmonia Mundi), a performance of Mozart’s Exultate Jubilate with the Louisiana Philharmonic in New Orleans, soprano solos in Esenvalds’ Passion and Resurrection in Kansas City, Ligeti's Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures in Dallas, recitals with lutenist Sylvain Bergeron and guitarist Colin Davin, and performances with Roomful of Teeth at Lincoln Center, Walt Disney Hall, and in Seoul, South Korea.
Originally from Santa Cruz, California, Estelí received her Bachelor of Arts with honors in music from Yale College, and Master of Music from McGill University, studying with Sanford Sylvan. She currently travels and performs full-time.
