Jamie Chamberlin has been praised by Opera News for her “shimmering tones” and “star struck vulnerability” as Marilyn Monroe in the US Premiere of Marilyn Forever at Long Beach Opera. Her many roles at LBO include Cunegonde in Candide and her “superhuman soprano” (Schmopera) turn as Faustine in Stewart Copeland’s The Invention of Morel, alongside husband Nathan Granner in the title role.
Ms. Chamberlin’s 2020 season includes appearances in Purcell’s King Arthur at LBO, and as Raphaella in the World Premiere of Copeland’s Satan’s Fall with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh.
Jamie was delighted to join the Pasadena Symphony Pops under the baton of Michael Feinstein for the MGM Movie Classics concert this past summer. Other recent performances include the title role in Lucia di Lammermoor with Pacific Opera Project, Mimi and Musetta with The California Philharmonic at Disney Hall, and Hazel George in the US Premiere of The Perfect American by Philip Glass at Chicago Opera Theater. She has been a guest artist at LA Opera, LA Phil, The Bakersfield Symphony, and the Louisville Orchestra. Jamie attended the prestigious Merola Opera Program at San Francisco Opera, where her debut performance was called “Spellbinding” by The San Francisco Chronicle.
Jamie holds both Bachelor of Arts and Master of Music degrees from UCLA and serves as a Lecturer in Vocal Technique for Beginners during UCLA’s summer session. She is also a Delos recording artist (Terrain of the Heart, Home is a Harbor), and can be heard singing Offenbach’s barcarolle during the epic water ballet scene in The Coen Bros. 2016 film Hail Caesar!. http://www.jamiechamberlin.com
