What to Expect
A charismatic and emotionally charged representation of musical theater and operatic repertoire.
Opera Stage in the semifinals of the Metropolitan Opera National Council (MONC) Auditions as well as making her Kennedy Center debut with the American Ballet Theatre, singing in Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream this past spring. She was recently acclaimed as “beautifully expressive and technically polished” by the San Francisco Chronicle in the title role of Mozart’s La Finta Giardiniera with the Merola Opera Program. Having finished her Adler Fellowship at the San Francisco Opera, she sang the role of Sibyl Vane in The Picture of Dorian Gray at the Aspen Music Festival this past summer. Next, she will be making her Washington National Opera and North Carolina Opera debuts this upcoming season. Before her Adler Fellowship, Jennifer sang Micaëla in La Tragédie de Carmen with Dayton Opera (Ohio). Her favorite roles include Susanna, First Lady and Miss Jessel. Having been raised singing country music and musical theatre, her voice speaks incredibly well in cross over repertoire. However, her shimmery silver voice shines brightest in the French repertoire and she cannot wait to sing roles like Leila, Manon and Juliette. An active individual offstage, Jennifer can be found riding horseback, her other passion in life, or in a yoga studio working on her handstand. Jennifer hails from La Plata, Maryland and loves to return home to spend time with her family, dogs and horses!
