Michelle Broadment's Alumna Recital


Soprano Michelle Broadbent Hatch, a seasoned performer across four continents, holds performance degrees from Utah State University and Brigham Young University. Currently pursuing a doctoral degree in Opera Performance at Arizona State University, she has been a long-time student of Darrell Babidge from the Juilliard School. Hatch also studied with baritone Gordon Hawkins at Arizona State University, Oberlin Conservatory in Italy, and with Daniel Ferro from the Juilliard School. In addition to numerous guest recitalist appearances, she has taken on leading roles in various operas, including Moore’s "The Ballad of Baby Doe," Menotti’s "The Old Maid and the Thief," Vaughan Williams’ "Riders to the Sea," de Falla’s "La Vida Breve," Smetana’s "The Bartered Bride," and the title role in Puccini’s "Suor Angelica."

As the recipient of several scholarships and awards, including BYU Singer of the Year and the Outstanding Opera Performance Award, Hatch triumphed in the Concerto Competition at both of her alma maters and was a district winner in the Metropolitan Opera’s National Council Auditions.

On Jan. 20, Hatch will showcase her favorite arias and art songs, featuring works by Faure, Brahms, Schuman, and Puccini. The recital will also include new repertoire by Mark Adamo, Ricky Ian Gordon, and Jonathan Dove, among others. This performance marks the culmination of her doctoral studies at ASU and is the final installment of a three-part recital series.
