Sony Classical has signed Julie Fuchs to an exclusive contract.
In a statement, the company said, “Fuchs has established herself as one the most exciting opera singers of her generation.”
The soprano’s first album for the company will be dedicated entirely to Mozart and will be released in November 2022.
