Praised by the San Francisco Classical Voice for her “warm,” “vibrant,” “glowing,” and “limpid” voice, soprano Jennifer Paulino is a standout among Baroque soloists and has performed extensively both nationally and internationally. Her performance in Handel’s Messiah with Seraphic Fire (Miami) in 2010 was praised in South Florida Classical Voice: “The sheer beauty and sincerity that soprano Jennifer Paulino brought to I know that my Redeemer liveth would be hard to equal.”
Equally renowned for her stunning voice and her dramatic capability, she is increasingly in demand as a versatile concert artist. Recently, Jennifer sang the West Coast premier of Sudden Music, a song cycle by award winning composer Lansing McLoskey. Past concert highlights include the title role in Handel’s Acis and Galatea, Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas, Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus, and Handel’s Ode to St. Cecilia.
Jennifer performs regularly as a soloist with the Magnificat Baroque Ensemble (Berkeley, CA) and her Baroque ensemble, Les grâces. She has also appeared as a soloist with the Leiden Baroque Ensemble (Netherlands), Catacoustic Consort (Cincinnati), Voices of Music, Seraphic Fire (Miami), and Nova Silesia (Poland), and has made solo appearances at the Festival of Contemporary Music in San Francisco, the International Chamber Music Festival in Olsztyn, Poland, and the Tropical Baroque Festival in Miami, FL.
Some highlights for the 2011–12 season include: Bach’s Magnificat with the California Bach Society, Mozart’s Mass in C minor with the San Francisco Choral Society, Carissimi’s Jephte with Magnificat Baroque Ensemble, Mozart’s Coronation Mass and Mahler lieder with the Southwest Florida Symphony, and Bach’s B Minor Mass with The Bach Ensemble of Naples, FL.
Jennifer is a founding member and principal singer of Les grâces Baroque Ensemble, formed in 2008 and dedicated to historically-informed performance of 17th & 18th century music. Les grâces will launch its first full-length CD, Les grâces françoises, in November 2011, distributed by MSR Classics.
Jennifer has studied Baroque styles with Julianne Baird, Jill Feldman, and Michael Chance, and holds degrees from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague, Netherlands and Westminster Choir College of Rider University in Princeton, NJ. In 2010, Jennifer won second prize in the Gerhard Herz Young Artists Competition for her interpretation of works by Bach, Mozart, and Handel.
