Based in Boston, lyric soprano Gabrielle Clutter has recently won the Metropolitan Opera National Council Awards Iowa District and the Encouragement Award at the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions Upper Midwest Region.

She is a current student of Dr. Rebecca Folsom and recently graduated with her Masters of Music in Opera Performance this spring.
