Hailed by Hamburg Abendblatt as “the most beautiful voice human vocal cords can produce” Dima Orsho is an established and seasoned singer. She holds an M.M. in opera performance from The Boston Conservatory and a B.M. in voice and clarinet from the Damascus High Institute of Music. Having learned clarinet as a second instrument, she brings an instrument player’s sensibility to her vocalizations, adding to the magic of her performances. Her approach to music is culturally nuanced, forging together diverse influences—from classical, to jazz, to Middle Eastern music. Dima has appeared as soloist on stages from the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, to the National Theater in Taipei. Dima is a Member of the trio HEWAR with Kinan Azmeh and Issam Rafea. Her first solo album, “Arabic Lieder,” was released in 2008. She was one of six collaborators including Tina Turner in the 2017 album “Awakening Beyond.” Photo credit: Martina Novak
