Coloratura soprano Amy Owens is establishing herself as a versatile performer with comedic flair, a strong aptitude for new music, and a soaring high range. During her two-year residency with Utah Opera (2012–2014), Ms. Owens was praised in Opera News for her "vivacious enthusiasm", "engaging, bell-like soprano", and "high-flying vocals", gaining particular notice for her performances as Blondchen in Die Entführung aus dem Serail and Papagena in Die Zauberflöte.

The 2016–2017 season sees Ms. Owens appear in concert and recital with several prestigious organizations, starting with a Liederabend at Washington University of St. Louis and her New Mexico Philharmonic debut in Carmina Burana. She joined New York Festival of Song to open their 2016–2017 NYFOS Next series at Brooklyn's National Sawdust, collaborating with the Momenta Quartet in the New York premiere performance of Gabriela Lena Frank's Iberian Songs for soprano and string quartet. Ms. Owens made her Dallas Opera debut in December 2016 performing in the Second Annual Linda and Mitch Hart Institute for Women Conductors concert.

In 2017, Ms. Owens rejoins New York Festival of Song as part of their Mainstage series to perform Paul Bowles' Picnic Cantata. She makes her Asian debut under the auspices of Hong Kong's The Intimacy of Creativity festival, performing the music of Bright Sheng, and her Reno Philharmonic debut performing Christopher Theofanidis' Grammy-nominated choral and orchestral work The Here and Now. In May 2017, Ms. Owens makes her Carnegie Hall debut in Carmina Burana with Mid-America Productions.

For Ms. Owens, the 2015-2016 season included appearances with the Utah Symphony as Le Feu, La Princesse, and Le Rossignol in L’enfant et les sortilèges and Mater Gloriosa in Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, which will be released as a commercial recording in 2017. She joined Wolf Trap Opera for a second consecutive season in the summer of 2016, performing the roles of Lucia in The Rape of Lucretia and Porporina in the American premiere of Florian Gassman’s L’opera seria. Ms. Owens's 2014–2015 season included appearances with Wolf Trap as Florestine in the mid-Atlantic premiere of Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles and Barbarina in Le nozze di Figaro. She was also seen as Despina in Così fan tutte with Opera Naples and appeared in workshop performances of Bright Sheng’s new opera The Dream of the Red Chamber in New York City and San Francisco with the Shenzhen Symphony Orchestra.

Ms. Owens is the recipient of a Sullivan Award, an encouragement award from the George London Foundation, and two consecutive wins from the Metropolitan Opera National Council district auditions in New York City. She has fulfilled young artist residencies with Santa Fe Opera, Utah Opera, Central City Opera, Wolf Trap Opera, and Utah Festival Opera.
