In 2018, Yost made her professional operatic debut with Detroit-based Opera MODO, singing the role of Angelina in their innovative adaptation of Rossini’s “La Cenerentola”. Since then, the Ann Arbor resident has performed roles with opera companies in the upper Midwest and appeared as a soloist and ensemble member with groups such as Ann Arbor’s UMS and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.
