Artistic Director - Mikki Sodergren 

Former ATC Gold Medalist and talented soprano, Mikki Sodergren has been appointed as the ATC’s new Artistic Director with immediate effect.  Sodergren has been involved in the Savannah community throughout her singing career, including engagements with the Savannah Philharmonic Orchestra and the Savannah VOICE Festival. In addition to winning the ATC Gold Medal in 2014, Sodergren was also awarded two further medals - one for best Johnny Mercer lyric interpretation, supplied by the Friends of Johnny Mercer, and the other for best jazz performance; the inaugural award in honor of the late Ben Tucker’s legacy. Sodergren has worked with the ATC over the last two years and is currently pursuing her musical career in both New York and Savannah. 

In New York, Sodergren enjoys a diverse performance career working in opera, jazz, theater and with several professional choral ensembles. She has a passion for being involved in the creation of new works, and has performed in several readings and workshops. Her achievements include workshops of the Disney musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, starring as Ali in the fully-produced workshop of The Bad Years (an immersive musical written by award-winning songwriting team, Kerrigan & Lowdermilk), and as Brooke in rising composer Kamala Sankaram’s “tech” opera, Looking at You. Sodergren has sung solo engagements with the Jacksonville Symphony (FL), the New Jersey Festival Orchestra and the Savannah Philharmonic, in addition to performing with the chamber orchestras of Tel Aviv and New York, and the New York Philharmonic. She performs frequently with choral groups, most notably with the Grammy®-nominated ensemble, The Clarion Choir. On the theatrical stage, Sodergren has portrayed such iconic roles as Eponine (Les Miserables), Ilse (Spring Awakening) Luisa Contini (Nine), Carmen (Carmen), Zerlina (Don Giovanni) and Cherubino (Le Nozze di Figaro). Sodergren is a proud alumna of Interlochen Arts Academy and the Boston University Tanglewood Institute.
