Charlotte Mundy


Charlotte Mundy spends most of her time singing, listening to or thinking about contemporary music. Before joining Q2 Music, she hosted a weekly new-music show on CIUT FM in Toronto. Recently noted by the New York Times for her performance of "tart and gangly lines, well sung," she has sung in forests and abandoned warehouses, while playing a hot tub/balnophone hybrid instrument outside in the middle of winter and another time while wearing an 8-channel speaker-suit. 

She is a member of Ensemble Sans Maître, The Alchemy Duo (with saxophonist Chelsea Shanoff) and Judd Greenstein's The Yehudim, and has sung with Roomful of Teeth and Tactus. A love of improvisation and collaborative theatre has led her to contribute to interdisciplinary works shown at Columbia University, The Kitchen, and the Music Gallery.

More conventional performance credits include singing with Judd Greenstein's The Yehudim at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, a tribute concert for Tristan Murail at Columbia University, Cynthia Hopkins' This Clement World at St. Ann's Warehouse, and Howard Fishman's A Star Has Burnt My Eye at Joe's Pub. Mundy is a recent graduate of the Contemporary Performance Program at the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with Lucy Shelton.
