Many are born, but few are chosen to share such an unbelievably inspirational and beautiful talent such as that of Laurie Rubin.
Laurie Rubin is visually impaired, but she has a magical ability to connect with the souls of others by using her voice and deep passion for music. A mezzo-soprano with a majestic aura, Laurie has received high praise from The New York Times music critic Anthony Tommasini, who wrote that she possesses "compelling artistry," and "communicative power," Recent career highlights include her UK solo recital debut performance at Wigmore Hall in London, her solo recital debut at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and the title role in Rossini's La Cenerentola.
Her second CD recording, Do You Dream in Color displays her innate gifts as more than just a heavenly talent. Laurie Rubin is an inspiring and rousing artist who will compel anyone within ears’ length to sit and stay a while.
" The centerpiece, Keeril Makan's "Target," was the climactic work of the night. It was also the one that made the strongest impression, partly thanks to the charismatic, multi-textured performance of mezzo-soprano Laurie Rubin. Blind since birth, Rubin seems to have an especially acute intuition about the power and subtleties of sound, and she was a compelling force at the center of the music."

“Rubin conveyed the complexities of Elle with a breathtaking yet balletic abandon. Her top notes shimmered with catharsis and her lower register rumbled with assured insecurity, giving away all of her character’s.”
