Elizabeth Zharoff

January 23, 2012

Soprano Elizabeth Zharoff

Soprano Elizabeth Zharoff can remember the exact moment she decided to become a professional musician. While she was singing in a high school competition, Zharoff saw and felt the audience lean forward anticipating her next note. Since then her star has continued to rise. Zharoff is now a master's candidate at the Curtis Institute of Music and she'll join host Fred Child all week long as Performance Today's Young Artist in Residence.
