Olanna Goudeau continues to captivate audiences with her dazzling coloratura, rich lyricism, crystalline upper range and her sparkling stage presence. The Port Arthur, TX native made her National TV debut on Season 9 of NBC’s America’s Got Talent, as one half of the opera duo, ACTE II. Since her appearances on the show she has toured both the US and abroad to great acclaim.
Olanna was invited to attend the esteemed Minuetto Festival as a Resident Artist where she was awarded the Milton Cross Rising Star Award, has earned a spot as a Regional Finalist at the prestigious Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, was awarded 1st place by the National Association of Teachers of Singing and 2nd place at the Benton-Schmidt Opera Competition. Ms. Goudeau has been chosen as a young artist by Cincinnati Opera, Opera New Jersey, Taos Opera Institute, and Cimarron Opera. Olanna began her 2019 season with a bang as a featured artist at Carnegie Hall for a concert of music by African-American Composers. That performance was followed by “Jubilation”, an evening of live music and immersive images celebrating the contributions of African Americans to the world musical lexicon at the Museum of Discovery in Fort Collins, Colorado. Olanna's most recent concert program, "Unsung Letters", was a huge hit at Symphony Space in New York City.
