Soprano Jennifer Rowley '02 will spend two four-day residencies at Baldwin Wallace University during the 2018-19 academic year.

She will offer a public master class with BW voice performance students, provide individual lessons and coachings, and lead classes about the career of the classical singer. During her spring residency, she will also present a recital with opera music director Jason Aquila.

Rowley is acclaimed worldwide for her unforgettable voice and remarkable stage presence. This past summer, 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. 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).

Next season, Rowley returns to The Metropolitan Opera as Tosca and in her title role debut as Adriana Lecouvreur, as well as several additional engagements with the house through 2020. The season will also mark her first appearance at the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino in September, as Leonora in "Il trovatore."

In future seasons, she will make debuts at The Dallas Opera, Opernhaus Zürich, Opera Australia, and Opéra de Marseille.
