Described as a "juicy tone" by the Baltimore Sun, soprano Millicent Scarlett, who hails from Winnipeg Manitoba Canada, continues to display her artistic and musical artistry on the recital, orchestral and operatic stage. Since winning the Luciano Pavarotti competition and being a national semi-finalist in the Metropolitan Opera Auditions, Professor Scarlett has gone on to have a successful career. Most recently she sang for Hillary Clinton at the George C. Marshall Foundation's Award dinner. She also sang the National Anthem and GW Alma Mater at the 2010 GWU Commencement on the National Mall where First Lady Michelle Obama was the keynote speaker. Her operatic engagements have included the role of Inez in Strathmore Music Center's World Premiere of "Free to Sing: The First Black Opera Company" where The Washington Times, called her "superb", and the Washington Post called her "the standout in the cast". 

She recently sang in another World Premiere of "Ozone" with Bowen McCauley Dance at the Kennedy Center's Terrace Theatre. Millicent has performed with Opera Lafayette in "The Genesis of Don Giovanni," where she played the role of Donna Anna.
