Bio

Öznur Tülüoğlu, soprano

Turkish-American soprano Öznur Tülüoğlu is a graduate of the University of Maryland, Maryland Opera Studio with her Master’s in opera performance. There, she studied under the tutelage of tenor, Gran Wilson. Notable engagements she performed with the Opera Studio include Mrs. Coyle in Britten’s Owen Wingrave with the National Orchestral Institute, and Arminda in Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera. Öznur is especially excited to continue her exploration of Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera from Sandrina’s perspective at her debut with Opera Neo this summer (2022).

Öznur has placed as a finalist in well-known competitions such as Opera Mississippi’s John Alexander Vocal Competition (2021), Music International Grand Prix (2020), and CS Singer (2020). 

Öznur earned her bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance at the New England Conservatory where she studied with soprano, Lisa Saffer. Her enthusiasm for score study expands to music theory, as Öznur worked with published musicologist Deborah Stein, in completing a minor in music theory with a focus on Schubert Lieder during her studies at NEC. 

In recent engagements, Öznur performed the role of Micaela in Loudoun Lyric Opera’s production of Carmen. Excited by collaborations and new music, Öznur seeks to work with composers and collaborative musicians by premiering new works, organizing joint recitals, and commissioning pieces in concert.
