Join us at the Cathedral of the Rockies on January 24 for a recital with Grammy Award-winning soprano Jessica E. Jones and friends. Accompanied by local pianist Betsi Hodges, she will perform some of her favorite pieces.
Jessica made her Opera Idaho debut in our production of Die Fledermaus in 2016, and returns to join the cast of La bohème in the role of Musetta in February, 2019. A Pocatello native who graduated from the University of Houston with both master’s and bachelor’s degrees in vocal performance, Jessica scored gold along with the entire cast for “Best Opera Recording” for her portrayal of Chrisann Brennan, Steve Job’s girlfriend and mother of his oldest child, in The (R)evoluton of Steve Jobs. It was Jessica’s first Grammy nomination and win.
Jessica has performed with Santa Fe Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Sarasota Opera, American Lyric Theater, Utah Opera, Utah Symphony, Opera Idaho, Eugene Opera, Opera Saratoga, Painted Sky Opera, Sun Valley Opera, Opera in the Heights, Sugar Creek Symphony & Song, and Crested Butte Music Festival.
