----More about our Guest Artist----Internationally acclaimed soprano Jennifer Grimaldi has been hailed as "a compelling and commanding singing actress with a silvery timbre that sparkles and shines" (Danbury Times News) and is a promising young talent on the opera, concert, and recital stage.
Ms. Grimaldi recently made her European solo debut with the Charlemagne Orchestra (Belgium) as featured soloist in Mendelssohn's Elijah. She has sung leading roles with many opera companies, including the Utah Festival Opera, Sarasota Opera, Brevard Music Festival, Intermezzo Opera Festival, and Raylynmor Opera, among others.
In 2011, Ms. Grimaldi will be a featured soloist in Mahler's Symphony No. 8 with the Mineria Orchestra (Mexico City) under the direction of Maestro Carlos Miguel Prieto. Other recent orchestral solo engagements include performances with the Queens Symphonic Orchestra, New Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, and the Third Street Music Settlement Orchestra.
