With a range of nearly three octaves and a lyric voice capable of unusual power, Magdalyn E. Boga has unique access to a wealth of vocal literature.

Her full operatic roles have included Barbarina in Mozart’s “Marriage of Figaro”, and Zerlina in Mozart’s “Don Giovanni”, and she has performed and studied folk song, art song, and a variety of works from the operatic repertoire. In addition to her extensive list of ensemble and solo recital repertoire, she has also delivered solo, duo and quartet performances of operatic and concert repertoire with choirs and orchestras, has performed in "What Makes It Great?" presentations with Robert Kapilow, and has performed Baroque duet repertoire with New York-based trumpeters Joseph Boga and Mark Gould. She has performed in a wide variety of languages, including English, Italian, French, Latin, Czech, Russian, Hebrew and Spanish, and has performed in the northeastern U.S. and in China.
