Alexia Rivera

Soprano

A member of the Grant Park Chorus, the Chicago Symphony Chorus, and the Ascension Choir, soprano Alexia Rivera has also been a soloist with such groups as the Fort Wayne Philharmonic (Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Lobgesang, Schubert Mass in G, Mozart’s Coronation Mass), Cantate (Faure Requiem, Corigliano’s Fern Hill), the Chicago Chamber Orchestra (Bach’s Cantata 51), the Valparaiso University Symphony Orchestra (R. Strauss’ Four Last Songs), and the University of Illinois Percussion Ensemble (Stravinsky’s Les Noces).

As a recitalist, Alexia has appeared on the PianoForte Salon Series Live on WFMT radio, the Musicians’ Club of Women Award Winners in Concert series at the Chicago Cultural Center, and the Fourth Presbyterian Church Friday concert series. Apart from her professional work, you may find Alexia in the garden, reading, organizing (a compulsive, though satisfying, habit), or exploring the beautiful Beverly neighborhood of Chicago where she lives with her husband, son, and dog.
