“Fast-rising South African soprano, Golda Schultz was a journalism major at Rhodes University in Grahamstown, South Africa when she took her first music elective, relevant to her exposure to the arts growing up from her classical music-loving father and theater-loving mother. In the school’s music library, she happened upon a recording of Die Fledermaus featuring soprano Kiri Te Kanawa, followed by an album of the legendary Maria Callas. Inspired by these recordings, Schultz began singing Mozart works and hasn’t stopped singing since, moving on to pursue a graduate degree in music at the University of Cape Town, cementing her decision to pursue an operatic career. After two years with the Cape Town Opera, Schultz traveled to the US for the first time to successfully audition for the prestigious Juilliard School.
