Kamna Gupta is an American Prize-winning conductor experienced in operatic, orchestral, and choral repertoires. She is especially passionate about new opera: in 2020, she made her Canadian debut with Tapestry Opera, where she recorded Rocking Horse Winner, by Gareth Williams and Anna Chatterton, which was recently featured on CBC Music's Saturday Afternoon at the Opera. She also conducted the workshop of The Selfish Giant by Clarice Assad and Lila Palmer. In 2021, she will conduct the recording of the piece, under the auspices of Opera Saratoga.
In summer of 2020, Gupta was slated to return to the Glimmerglass Festival to conduct Così?, a modern adaptation of the beloved classic (cancelled due to Covid-19). Additional company credits include the Royal Opera in Versailles, the Glimmerglass Festival, Beth Morrison Projects, Sarasota Opera, Opera Saratoga, and the American Lyric Theater.
Active internationally, Gupta's orchestral credits include performances in Germany, Russia, and the Czech Republic, a special highlight including leading the Leipzig Barockorchester in an all-Bach program. Additional previous highlights include her work as an apprentice conductor with the New York Youth Symphony and as a Conducting Fellow at the Atlantic Music Festival, where she recorded many contemporary works by living composers.
Gupta's passion for education has also led her to collaborate with education departments at the New York Philharmonic and the Castleton Festival. Kamna is currently based in New York and in addition to her conducting activities, she is active as a pianist and harpsichordist.
