Welcome to the website of New York based Contralto Heather Petrie.

Last minute announcement: I am stepping for a sick colleague and will sing a short virtual recital Friday, February 12 at 8pm with pianist Blake Hansen. 

We will present a program of Mahler songs and opera arias, and a fun surprise!
