As a classically trained singer, I am available for many different types of engagements and functions. Examples include, but are not limited to, weddings, funerals, large functions, etc. I am very experienced in opera, art song, and musical theater. I have a large repertoire and am always willing to learn new music. I also have access to many other instrumentalists and singers if a gig requires it. Based in Boston, MA, I am available for the Holidays or any other time of year. Willing to travel within a reasonable distance outside of Boston.
Elena performed exceptionally well at our birthday/thanksgiving day family event. She is very gifted with a beautiful and powerful voice which filled the room with golden tones. She is also a pleasure to work with, being very accommodating for our particular needs concerning her repertoire. I highly recommend Elena to add fun and talent to any engagement.

What to Expect
Any member or client can expect a professional demeanor and a wonderful personality. My repertoire focuses on the lighter lyric repertoire with a splash of colouratura. I also have an extensive musical theater repertoire as well as popular music. If given enough time, I am willing to learn new music for the specific gig. I do not provide a keyboard or piano, but if the gig permits, I can bring an accompanist with me that I trust and have worked with on numerous occasions. I am experienced in performing background music for large events as well as being a featured soloist for functions and fund raisers.
Elena Jarlson was raised singing in the church with her family and closest friends. She started her musical training as a violinist at age nine. She then moved to Alaska and in the process realized that violin was not her true passion, opera was. It was in Alaska that she started her operatic training with Kate Egan. Miss Jarlson moved from Anchorage, AK to study with Joanna Levy at the Hartt School in West Hartford, CT where she received her Bachelors of Music in 2011. Throughout her career at the Hartt School, Miss Jarlson was a featured soloist with many chamber groups such as Hartt’s Collegium Ensemble and the Valley Chamber Orchestra. She participated in Hartt’s Opera Theater from the moment she entered the doors. Within four years, she had the opportunity to perform roles and excerpts from the operas Orpheus in the Underworld, Dido and Aeneas, Le Nozze di Figaro, Die Zauberflote, La Traviata, Giulio Cesare, Nabucco, La Fille du Regiment, and the title role in Hansel und Gretel. In the fall of 2011, Miss Jarlson began the pursuit of her Masters of Music at the New England Conservatory under the wise tutelage of Karen Holvik. While at NEC, Miss Jarlson was given the opportunity to perform Manuelita in Offenbach's La Perichole, Poppet in Britten's Paul Bunyan, and the Queen in Pasatieri's The Goose Girl. Miss Jarlson received her MMus in Vocal Performance from NEC in May, 2013. Most recently, she performed with the MIT Gilbert and Sullivan players as Josephine in HMS Pinafore while simultaneously participating as a featured soloist in a Christmas concert series, "A Very Britten Christmas" hosted by Opera Brittenica, Boston's newest opera company. Miss Jarlson can be found singing throughout the greater Boston area and is always excited for the next opportunity.
