Denean Dyson

A free-spirited mezzo-soprano genuinely passionate about all things music, Denean Dyson is a true artist who, whether singing classical repertoire, R&B, soul, pop or jazz, brings a beautifully skilled and emotionally artistic sound to every performance. A Vegas-born chanteuse, Denean earned a B.A. in music from CSU Fullerton’s School of Music (’11) and immediately launched into a career as a professional vocalist, entertaining audiences in solo and ensemble performances in the US and abroad.
Dyson has had an exciting career, collaborating with legendary artists like renowned mezzo-soprano Susan Graham, jazz and blues legend Barbara Morrison, singer and actress Reba McEntire, and incredible composers like Rhiannon Giddeons and Jake Heggie. Her collective work with the Pacific Chorale and LA Master Chorale has won her a Grammy!  She also takes to the theatrical stage, having recently joined the LA Opera chorus in their acclaimed production of the Pulitzer Prize winning opera Omar.  Still, her diverse vocal flexibility is best exhibited in her solo work, such as her stirring rendition of “Precious Lord Take My Hand” in Pacific Chorale’s concert film The Wayfaring Project (PBS/YouTube,) or PC's commanding performance of the Bernstein Mass; again displayed in the Segerstrom Center Cabaret Series with a rendition of Hamilton’s “Satisfied” or more recently as a featured Jazz & Blues soloist in Pacific Symphony's Gershwin Rhapsody Celebration, and she continues to entertain as the lead vocalist of her group Denean's Soul Foundation at events and venues throughout Southern CA like the CSU Fullerton Concert Under the Stars as well as the Disneyland's Food and Wine Festival.
Dyson has performed in ensembles for renowned conductors like Gustavo Dudamel, John Williams, Ludwig Wicki, Carl St.Clair, John Alexander, Robert Istad, Kazem Abdullah, Nicholas McGegan, and Keith Lockhart, in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Hollywood Bowl, Staples Center, Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and many more.
