Victoria Offutt is a Chicago-based mezzo-soprano currently pursuing a degree in vocal performance at Central Michigan University. Victoria's large, flexible voice lends itself to baroque opera and concert music as well as romantic era opera and art song, African American spirituals, contemporary classical music, and jazz. Her repertoire includes several Handel roles--Cornelia and Cesare (Giulio Cesare), Dejanira (Hercules), and the title role in Serse. She has also performed Melanto in Monteverdi's L'Incorazione di Poppea, Ursule in Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict, and both the alto and soprano solos in Duke Ellington's Sacred Concert.
Victoria is a founding member of Ring Shout, an African American artistic collective whose mission is to uplift the contributions of Black artists-- past and especially present-- across the African diaspora. She is also a co-founder of the 8th Generation Alliance, an advocacy group for North Eastern American Indigenous nations.
