Mezzo-soprano Heidi Jost is a versatile musician with a passion for both the concert and operatic stage. Heidi has appeared as Sister Helen in Dead Man Walking with Opera Nuova, Giulio Cesare in the Halifax Summer Opera Festival, Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia with Pellegrini Opera, Cherubino in Vancouver Summer Opera Studio’s production of Le nozze di Figaro, 3e Fille du Rhin in the World Premiere of Gabriel Thibaudeau's Le Quatrième Enfant-Lune with Opera V Mana in Montreal, and Dorabella in Così fan tutte with renowned Canadian pianist and opera coach, Jean Desmarais.

On the concert stage, Heidi performed the mezzo solos in Saint-Saens Christmas Oratorio with the Thirteen Strings, conducted by Kevin Mallon. She was a soloist and chorister in the Tafelmusik Summer Baroque Institute in Toronto, where she worked with conductor Ivars Taurins and baritone Peter Harvey. Heidi also performed Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with soprano Erinne-Colleen Laurin and the Quatuor Despax annually for three consecutive years.

A winner in 2011 of The North York Concert Orchestra Mozart Vocal Competition, Heidi was the alto soloist for Handel’s Ode for the Birthday of Queen Anne, and Mozart’s Coronation Mass with the Oakville Choral Society, under the direction of David Bowser. She returned in December of 2012 as soloist in Handel’s Messiah. Also on the concert stage, Heidi has performed the title role in Handel’s Solomon, and was a soloist in Judas Maccabaeus with the baroque orchestra of the Victoria Conservatory of Music Summer Oratorio Program, under the direction of harpsichordist and conductor Laurence Cummings.

Heidi holds a Master of Music degree in voice performance from the University of Ottawa where she studied with Ingemar Korjus, and a Baccalaureate of Music in flute performance with Robert Cram. She works regularly with soprano Christiane Riel and coach Jean Desmarais. Heidi sings with the Ottawa Bach Choir, and maintains a thriving private voice, flute, and piano studio in Ottawa. She plans to move to London, UK, in Fall 2016 to teach and audition.
