Israeli mezzo-soprano Maya Ben-Meir is both a soloist and ensemble singer. She holds Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Vocal Performance from the Academy of Music and Dance in Jerusalem, where she also spent time as producer of the Opera department, manager of the Jerusalem Academy Chamber Choir and alto section leader. Her style ranges from classical to contemporary and modern music, as well as rock and folk.
Maya has performed as a soloist with the Raanana Symphonette Orchestra in an orchestrated concert of Schubert's "Winterreise" and with the Israel Sinfonietta Beer Sheva in numerous programs including a Chanson concert, and a concert portraying the songs of Israeli composer Sasha Argov. Maya has sung in the Abu-Gosh music festival conducted by Maestro Stanley Sperber and was a part of the cast of Oedipus 2011-Opera Theater at the Israel Festival in Jerusalem that same year, conducted by Guy Feder. She has sung on various stages in Israel and the United States, among them a tribute concert for the lyricist Eli Mohar in the Tel-Aviv museum and Cabaret stages in New York. Maya has performed as a soloist in many projects such as the Concerto for Cinema project in the Jerusalem Cinematheque, and in the "Sounds of the Desert" festival in a tribute concert for Israeli songwriter, pianist and composer Yoni Rechter and an evening of Moshe Villensky's songs.
