Colombia native Camila Parias is a frequent soloist with the Boston Camerata. Parias, whose tone has been praised for its strength and clarity, also collaborates with ensembles such as La Donna Musicale, Skylark Ensemble, and Handel+Haydn Society. Her international appearances include performances in Europe of Borrowed Light with the Boston Camerata. She can be heard on Camerata’s most recent CDs, Free America! and A Medieval Christmas – Hodie Christus Natus Est. Upcoming engagements include concerts with Pegasus, Upper Valley Baroque, and a performance at the Houston Early Music Festival. In addition, she will sing Belinda in Dido and Aeneas with the Camerata, a role she has previously performed. Camila is particularly interested in early music of Spain and the New World. She recently introduced Cantos y Suspiros, an ongoing collaboration with harp and Baroque guitar/theorbo which celebrates 17th century Spanish secular songs. In Bogota, she recorded selections of archival manuscripts belonging to that city’s Cathedral.
