Brilliant young Thai-American soprano Ariya Sawadivong is increasing demand for operatic and concert performances around the world.

A native of Asheville, North Carolina, Ariya graduated from the prestigious Academy of Vocal Arts (AVA) in Philadelphia where she studied with Ruth Golden. She previously earned her bachelor’s degree in vocal performance from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG), where she studied voice with Dr. James Bumgardner. While at AVA, she performed many leading roles including the title roles in Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta and Janacek’s Kat’a Kabanova, Tatyana in Eugene Onegin, Despina in Cosi fan tutte, Suzel in L’amico Fritz, Woglinde and Wellgunde in Das Rheingold and Gilda in Rigoletto.

Ariya portrayed the role of Mimi in La bohème with Bozeman Opera in Bozeman, Montana. Amongst her frequent appearances on the concert platform, she has sung the soprano solos in Orff’s Carmina Burana with the Bucks County Symphony and Vivaldi’s Gloria with the Asheville Symphony Orchestra.

In 2011, Ariya joined the principal ensemble of Opera Australia and appeared as soloist with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in their Puccini Gala singing opposite the renowned New Zealand tenor Simon O’Neill.

2012 engagements included Opera in the Arboretum (with Rosario La Spina and Milijana Nikolic), Something Wonderful (the music of Rodgers and Hammerstein) for Sydney Philharmonia at the Sydney Opera House and Verismo at Melbourne Town Hall for Logan Musical Events. Ariya sang the role of Frasquita in Carmen for Opera Australia’s Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour in March and April, 2013. This spectacular run of performances was released worldwide on CD and DVD. The following year, she joined the touring production of The King & I and, in 2015, will appear in Singapore as soprano soloist in Mahler’s Symphony No. 8.
