Lulu D’Amore (Linda Burns Mukherjee) is a performing artist creating experiences out of New York City. Born in Michigan, she has had the privilege of studying with Marti McConnell, Molly Filmore, Martha Sheil, Stanford Olsen, and Jacqui Bobak. She received her BM in Vocal Performance from the University of Michigan where she performed in the operas Die Zauberflöte, Dead Man Walking, and as “Clorinda” in La Cenerentola. She then went on to earn her MFA in Voice Arts as a Lillian Disney Scholar from California Institute of the Arts, where she performed as “Union Organizer” in the a cappella opera Sweat.
As a vocalist, composer, and voice actor, she embraces the uncomfortable while infusing the fantastical. She is the primary creator of Try Me., a collage opera featuring a selection of music written by female-identifying composers for female-identifying vocalists. Utilizing the form of a vocal recital, Try Me. explores musical narrative, leitmotif, physical theater, and nonlinear storytelling. Inspired by Libby Larsen's Try Me, Good King: Last Words of the Wives of Henry VIII, the narrative recital partners music from the past 600 years with gestural design and movement, creating a multi-layered narrative experience.
Lulu loves the Rugrats, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Michigan autumns, and her kitten, Momo.
