Hailed as “glowing” (The Boston Globe) and “a singing actress to be reckoned with,” American soprano Jacquelyn Stucker is quickly being recognized as a versatile singer of new and interesting repertoire from concert works to opera to contemporary music. Noted as a “potentially major talent,” upcoming engagements include the soprano solos in Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with Mo. John Nelson and the Costa Rica National Symphony Orchestra, the roles of Gabriel and Eve in Die Schöpfung with the Back Bay Chorale, John Harbison’s Mirabai Songs in Jordan Hall, and an upcoming debut as a principal artist with the Santa Fe Opera. This summer, she was heard as an Apprentice Artist with the Santa Fe Opera, where she covered and the Italian Singer in Capriccio, and American soprano Ailyn Pérez as Juliette in Roméo et Juliette. Jacquelyn was a finalist for this year’s Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions (New England Region), the 2015 Ruth Freehof Award winner, a 2016 Santa Fe Opera Career Advancement Grant winner, and the Docia Goodwin Franklin Third Place Award winner in the 2015 Lyndon Woodside New York Oratorio Society Competition. A resident of Boston, MA, Jacquelyn is also a doctoral candidate in Vocal Performance at New England Conservatory, where she studies privately with Lorraine Nubar. When she’s not singing, Jacquelyn enjoys long-distance running: she’s a seasoned half- and full-marathoner, and she recently ran the 2015 Chicago Marathon. She has a very crabby cat, a very wonderful husband, and is known to bake a very delicious loaf of challah. Please visit www.jacquelynstucker.com for more information.
