It’s our pleasure to introduce Samantha Grambow (née Farmilant), soprano, who appears on the PaTRAM Institute Singers’ GRAMMY-nominated recording of Kurt Sander’s “The Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom”. Recognized for her “authenticity” and “attention to text,” Samantha appears regionally as a recitalist and on the opera, oratorio, and concert stages. In 2016, Samantha sang the world premiere of Gwyneth Walker’s “Emily!” at the National Association of Teachers of Singing Publishers Showcase in Chicago. Most recently, she made her solo debut with the Tucson Symphony Orchestra and the Siletz Bay Music Festival, and received a scholarship award from the American Opera Society.

Please enjoy this wonderful video clip of Samantha’s version of Pink Martini’s “Sympathique”. About this piece, Samantha said, “I recorded it in March 2020 at the beginning of quarantine…the first line (“ma chambre a la forme d’une cage) really spoke to me! ;-)”.
