Marie Te Hapuku

Joined the MET Chorus in 2013

Ms. Te Hapuku was recognized as "the sort of voice that the orchestra loves, fitting into its texture with an easy warmth" by Opera News.

Originally performing as a principal soloist, her career has taken her to the premiere opera stages of exotic locations, including Barcelona, Sydney, Tokyo, and Bozeman, MT. She enjoys Polynesian dancing, watching rugby, baking pavlovas for her hubby and two kids, and trying to master the art of knitting. Website:
