American soprano Jamilyn Manning-White, praised for her delightful and winning stage personality as well as her superb singing, is becoming recognized as a definitive young soprano of her generation. Allan Kozinn, in the New York Times, observed “Jamilyn Manning-White gave a strong, shapely performance. … Lovely.” And the Berkshire Review of the Arts singled her out as typifying “what is required of the current and future generations of opera singers: attractive both in voice and appearance, [with] an instinctive grasp of their material, and an unaffected stage presence.” She sang Musetta in La bohème with Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre and was soloist in Carmina Burana (Craig Jessop conducting) with the American Festival Chorus in summer of 2015. Her 2015-16 season currently includes Musetta in La bohème (semi-staged) with Bangor Symphony Orchestra; the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor for New York’s Heartbeat Opera; concert performances with Yale Musical Theatre on the Air as Ethel Toffelmeier in Music Man; and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with New York City’s Litha Symphony Orchestra.
