Noriko Fujii Paukert, born in Tokyo, Japan, began piano studies at age four. After graduating from Toho-Gakuen School of Music she came to the United States, having received a Fulbright grant, to study at Washington University in St. Louis.

Ms. Fujii made her U.S. debut with St. Louis Symphony, singing soprano solos in Handel's Messiah. Since then her performances of recitals, chamber music and oratorios have been hailed in Europe, United States and Japan by audiences and critics alike. Her engagements have taken her to Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom and Japan. Recordings include A la Vierge Marie French 20th century sacred music; For John Muir by Bain Murray: Music of Cleveland composers; and Sonnet Haiku by Edwin London.
