In November 2017 Jennifer produced and performed in “Chrysalis....Emerging” a concert of Musical Theatre and Opera in Pittsburgh, PA to positive reviews.

Blessed with a lithe Lyric Soprano and a gift for moving the heart she has crafted a considerable repertoire of Musical Theater jewels like, “Dividing Day” (The Light In The Piazza); “Children Of The Wind” & “Blame It On The Summer Night” (Rags); “Never” (On The Twentieth Century); “How Could I Ever Know” (The Secret Garden); “Send In The Clowns” (A Little Night Music); “Hello Young Lovers” (King And I), “There's Music In You” (Cinderella); and more.

On the Classical side, she's captivating in Orff's Carmina Burana, and Light Opera’s “The Merry Widow” and “The Enchantress”. Her English Opera offerings include “I Want Magic” and “Sea Air” (A Streetcar Named Desire), “Embroidery Aria” (Peter Grimes), and “Ain’t It A Pretty Night” (Susannah) Oratorio Highlights include Handel’s Messiah, Beethoven Mass in C, Mozart Exultant Jubilate, Faure Requiem, Brahms Requiem, Poulenc Gloria and an April 2018 performance of Bob Chilcott’s St John Passion.

"The best compliment I can get is when I hear from a patron that my performance helped them forget their troubles and lighten their hearts. That's what it's all about”
