Brett Ruona, soprano, is thrilled to be making her
first appearance with the Silicon Valley Symphony. She recently earned her Master of Music degree from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where she
performed the roles of Atalanta in Handel’s Serse and La Fee in Massenet’s Cendrillon. A native of Fresno,
CA, she was awarded first place in the Fresno Musical Club’s Rose Pollack competition. She feels privileged to study with soprano Nikki Li Hartliep.
