“Zhou had soprano Elizabeth De Trejo stand center stage and address the audience directly.
Speaking out like so many women at the trials of powerful men, her testimony was chilling.

"Your job is to discover the world and then with all your heart give yourself to it"


Elizabeth De Trejo is trailblazing a new path in the sphere of classical voice, and through the International School of the Voice, is revolutionizing the way the art form is taught. Elizabeth is a consummate soprano and recitalist, having sung extensively in Europe, Asia and the Americas. Elizabeth’s students are frequent first place winners and finalists in competitions such as the Monserrat Caballé, the Fausto Ricci, Maria Caniglia, Neue Stimmen, Belvedere, the Metropolitan Opera Laffont, and several more. A student of hers and currently, Mauricio Trejo, one of the ISV Principal Artists in the International School of the Voice, Monica Conesa will made a historic debut at the esteemed, historic Arena di Verona as Aida and Gioconda, (one of the youngest artists to debut there, since Maria Callas, who debuted as Gioconda, also). Elizabeth’s technical work is increasing in demand, and she regularly gives masterclasses worldwide, and is also most recently, working regularly with the Florida Grand Opera young artists.
