Elaine Daiber

Elaine Daiber, soprano (Milton, MA), has been heralded for her "spectacular vocalism" (Hudson Housatonic Arts), which has garnered much acclaim on the operatic, concert, and recital stages. Elaine is thrilled to be returning to Yellow Barn this summer, where she took part in a performance of Kurtág's "Kafka Fragments" last year. During the 2020-2021 season, Elaine participated in a concert of Bach arias and duets with Emmanuel Music, a production of Poulenc's "La voix humaine" in Boston's Jordan Hall with pianist JJ Penna, and in a concert of new works by women composers with NYFOS Next. Last season, she made her role debut as Ilia in Mozart's "Idomeneo" in Boston's Jordan Hall, and was seen on the concert stage as a Schwab Vocal Rising Star with the New York Festival of Song at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, and as a featured soloist in the US premiere of Helen Grime's "Bright Traveller" in a Boston Symphony Orchestra Prelude. Other engagements have included performances with The Tanglewood Music Center, The Bard Music Festival, The New York Festival of Song, The Orchestra Now, and the Albany Symphony, among others. Elaine holds degrees from Oberlin Conservatory, Bard College, and New England Conservatory.
