Shortly after graduating in 2009 from the Curtis opera program, Amanda was thrust into the spotlight at the Lyric Opera of Chicago when she recieved the call to step in for a principal singer who had fallen ill.

Since that fateful night, Amanda's career has taken off, leading to performances in Paris, Zurich, Frankfurt, Madrid, Buenos Aires, and more. A specialist in Mozart and Strauss, her 2018 season includes an appeance as Fiordiligi in the Metropolitan Opera's Così fan tutte, and a return to Curtis on April 29 to perform Strauss's Four Last Songs with the Curtis Symphony Orchestra.
