“From the moment the young soprano appeared until she took her final bow, she captivated the audience,” wrote music critic Allisyar about DELARAM KAMAREH. “She has a purity in her voice that is easy to enjoy, pin-point technique, and a remarkable range.” A true coloratura, Delaram is equally comfortable singing classically and operatically as she is in her native Persian, Middle Eastern and Balkan modes and can sing in excess of a dozen languages. This diversity in vocal technique, range and genres allows her to express that syncretic versatility which is much sought after in the contemporary music world: with Southwest Chamber Orchestra Delaram recently sang a “veritable minefield of a soprano part” in Oliver Knussen’s “Hums and Songs of Winnie the Pooh," and her collaboration with groundbreaking young opera company -The Industry- began with scenes from Pauline Oliveros’s electronic opera “Nubian Word for Flowers”. Delaram will further this collaboration by participating in Christopher Cerrone's Invisible Cities, an opera performed in the beautiful structure of the Los Angeles Union Station.
Delaram studied piano at the conservatory of Tehran before moving to the United States where she was awarded a scholarship from the opera department at UCLA under the tutelage of Vladimir Chernov. She is currently a student of Reid Bruton and Judith Natalucci. In addition to her contemporary music projects she has sung the role of Blonde in "Die Eintführung aus dem Serail," the title roles in both "Lakmé" and "Doña Francisquita," and was a soloist in Bach's "St. John's Passion". No stranger to performing, at age seven she was at ease in front of the camera in the conservative world of Iranian National Television, continuing her childhood career well into her teens. She last starred in a popular comedy directed by celebrated Iranian director, Marzieh Boroumand.
Delaram currently resides in both Los Angeles and Rome, working on a song cycle inspired by poetry from the late Pope John Paul II, to be recorded in LA in 2014. “Delaram Kamareh. Remember that name... one to keep your eyes and ears on in the coming years.”
