Acclaimed soprano Jennifer Rowley '02 will serve as artist in residence at Baldwin Wallace University during the 2019-20 academic year. This is her second residency at her alma mater, following several years presenting master classes for voice performance students.

Rowley will offer public master classes, provide individual lessons and coachings, and lead classes about the career of the classical singer. She will present a recital and other events that are free and open to the public.

Rowley is acclaimed worldwide for her unforgettable voice and remarkable stage presence. In the summer of 2018, she debuted in the title role of Simon Mayr's rarely performed bel canto opera "Medea in Corinto" in New York with Will Crutchfield's newly formed summer festival, Teatro Nuovo.

In the 2017-18 season, following her performances of the same title role with Nashville Opera, Rowley returned to The Metropolitan Opera in their new production of "Tosca," where she presented a "magnificent" (ZealNYC) portrayal of the title role. She later starred as Leonora in "Il trovatore" on the Met stage, celebrated as "glorious, showing the listener the range her instrument truly possesses" (Operawire).

In the 2018-19 season, Rowley reprised her performance in "Tosca" and made her title-role debut as Adriana Lecouvreur at the Met. The season also marked her first appearance at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in September, as Leonora in "Il trovatore."

Rowley has several additional engagements with the Met through 2020. In future seasons, she will make debuts at The Dallas Opera, Opernhaus Zürich, Opera Australia, and Opéra de Marseille.
