Jennifer Black – guest soprano
Lyric soprano Jennifer Black is “gleaming and glorious, with wonderful nuances of light and shade and complete dynamic control,” (Santa Fe New Mexican) and is in high demand on international opera and concert stages. Recently, she dazzled audiences in her show-stopping performance as Lida in La Battaglia Di Legnano with Sarasota Opera, for which critics hailed “Jennifer Black, as Lida…is a brilliant soprano with a cutting but beautiful voice and the air of a leader’s wife.” Black will recently returned to the Metropolitan Opera for their production of Gianni Schicchi and made her debut with Opera Australia in Il Viaggio a Reims in 2019. Having graced some of the finest opera stages around the globe, favorite engagements for Ms. Black include: the Metropolitan Opera; the Teatro Municipal in Santiago, Chile; Théâtre du Capitole de Toulouse; Seattle Opera; Los Angeles Opera; Arizona Opera; Atlanta Opera; Minnesota Opera; Santa Fe Opera; Nashville Opera; and New York City Opera.
She will be presenting a recital at Texas Lutheran University on Tuesday, December 7th, and is joining us in worship to sing the sacred art song cycle by Rosephanye Powell entitled Then, Here & Now.
