Jennifer Ashe

Mustering up "rock solid technique" and "the kind of vocal velvet you don't often hear in contemporary music" (Boston Phoenix), soprano Jennifer Ashe has been praised for performances that are "pure bravura...riveting the audience with a radiant and opulent voice" (The Boston Globe). A strong advocate of new works, she frequently performs on series such as Harvard Group for New Music, New Music Brandeis, New Gallery Concert Series, and the Fromm Festival at Harvard, and is a senior member of the Callithumpian Consort and the soprano for the Boston Microtonal Society's chamber ensemble NotaRiotous. She created the role of Sarah Palin in Guerilla Opera's premiere of Say It Ain't So, Joe by Curtis Hughes and was a semi-finalist at the 2007 Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition. Recent projects include Lukas Foss's Time Cycle with Boston Musica Viva, and this fall she will sing Phillipe Leroux's Voi(Rex) with Sound Icon. She also sings with Boston Baroque and the Handel & Haydn Society. Ashe holds a DMA in Vocal Performance and an MM in Vocal Pedagogy from New England Conservatory, and a BM from the Hartt School of Music. Formerly on the faculties of the College of the Holy Cross and Eastern Connecticut State University, she currently teaches for the Community Music Center of Boston, Music and Movement of Newton, and Music Together Arlington.
