Malina Rauschenfels (voice, aerial dance)

Malina Rauschenfels is a soprano, composer, multi-instrumentalist and now aerialist who moved to Cleveland after 11 years in New York City. Praised by the New York Times for her “compelling” performances and as “remarkable” by the Village Voice, she loves performing both new music and early music.  She has performed with Quire Cleveland, Marble Sanctuary Choir, North Carolina Baroque Orchestra, Nuove Musiche, Toby Twining Music,  Trinity Chamber Singers, Alarm Will Sound and C4 – the Choral Composer Conductor Collective. She attended the Eastman School of Music and the Juilliard School for her BM and MM in cello performance and composition. Recently Malina decided to move to Mérida, México where she is teaching English, yoga, starting orchestras, and building an aerial dance studio. She is very excited about her budding school/community center designed to bring the people in her neighborhood together with friends visiting from the US.
