Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
“Lane [as Irene] was a wonderful foil to Ava Pine in a vocal sense; her tone is velvet-smooth, with a rich darkness that carries a subtle gravitas in the music.” [Handel’s Theodora]--John Norine, Jr., TheaterJones, February 24, 2012

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
“Also on the list of high points were Lane’s moving “Defend her, Heav’n” and Pine’s and Angel’s beautifully sung duet “Thither let our hearts aspire.” [Theodora]--Olin Chism, Art & Seek, February 24, 2012

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: St. Matthew Passion
“The musical forces could hardly have been bettered…there was an excellent quartet of soloists...Jennifer Lane rounded out the group solidly, the interplay with Deborah Nemtanu’s violin quite effective in Erbarme Dich.” [St. Matthew Passion, Soli Deo Gloria]--Mark Thomas Ketterson, ConcertoNet.com, April 20, 2011

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Mahler Symphony No. 3
“Jennifer Lane, in her Chautauqua debut…Ms. Lane handled her deeply-felt solo in the fourth movement expertly.” [Mahler”s Symphony No. 3, Chautauqua]--Robert Finn, The Chautauquan Daily, August 2, 2010

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: St. John Passion
“Jennifer Lane wrapped her voice poignantly around the mezzo-soprano phrases of the oratorio’s most anguished aria, “Es ist vollbracht,” with Schiffer as eloquent gamba soloist.” [St. John Passion]--Donald Rosenberg, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, April, 18, 2010

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with Chicago Baroque Band
“Jennifer Lane, the mezzo-soprano, performed these sections with a dramatic intensity that honored the texts...[Stabat Mater]. The Salve Regina, in F minor, is darkly melancholy, with a lyrical undercurrent that Ms. Lane projected beautifully.” [Pergolesi Tricentennial, Sinfonia New York]--Allan Kozinn, New York Times, March 30, 2010

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with Chicago Baroque Band
“….ebullient, aerated performances by vocal soloists….Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane’s dusky timbre persuasively shaded her darker solos, underlining their anticipation of late Mozart. Duets had ardor, warmth of rapport, and a blending of timbres that sustained long phrases with discreet expression.” [Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, Baroque Band Chicago]--Alan G. Artner, Chicago Tribune, January 11, 2010

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
"[Richard] Egarr had a superb, agile group of vocal soloists to work with...mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, and he gave everyone the freedom in tempo to indulge in elaborate ornamentation." [Theodora, San Diego Bach Collegium]--Richard S. Ginell, Los Angeles Times, June 29, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
"Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane conveyed the sympathetic nature of Theodora’s friend, Irene, and fearlessly tackled tricky coloratura flourishes." [Theodora, San Diego Bach Collegium]--Valerie Scher, San Diego News Network, 6/28/2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
"The rest of the soloists perform these (arias) with much Baroque skill and musical beauty.....Jennifer Lane, veteran mezzo, performs Irene, Theodora's confidant, in a mature voice of much skill, and great feeling." [Theodora, San Diego Bach Collegium]--George Weinberg-Harter, SanDiegoArts.com, June 28, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Theodora
"The American mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, a singer of great expertise, interpreted the role of Irene with a lovely burnished tone and commendable certainty." [Theodora, San Diego Bach Collegium]--Ramon Jacques, Operaclick.com, 6/27/2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Dido with Chicago Baroque Band
"Purcell conjured up beautiful heartache music for Dido, and Clarke pulled a rabbit out of his hat convincing mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane to perform. Lane's voice has an exceptional strong dark quality, and she sings with clear tone and sophisticated phrasing. "When I am laid in earth," Dido's lament at losing her love, is one of Purcell's great creations, and Lane found all the tears in it, convincing us that one can surely die of a broken heart. Lane was equally adept with the music of the Sorceress, filling the church with wicked, frightening incantations…..The big finish was supplied by Giovanni B. Ferrandini, whose "Il pianto di Maria" had until recently been attributed to Handel. Lane, Clarke and the band gave this splendid music full glory. Lane was bold when the music called for it but knew when to throttle things down. Her deep lower register had a burning intensity. The instrumentalists rose to the occasion and drew out the unusual dissonances we associate with more modern music. Applause was augmented with foot stomping, and I stopped counting the number of times Clarke and Lane returned to the stage to acknowledge the well-deserved appreciation of the audience." [Baroque Band, Chicago]--M.I. Rantala, Hyde Park Herald, July 1, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Dido with Chicago Baroque Band
“(Chicago’s) Baroque Band did the honors...Jennifer Lane was in the solo spotlight--"actually on the small raised platform--"for excerpts from Purcell’s Dido. For a singer with a background primarily in early music, Lane possesses an imposing mezzo instrument….rising to the expressive height of When I am Laid in Earth with refined eloquence. Lanes’s voice and temprament suited to the boldly Italianate passions of Ferrandini’s setting, the mezzo singing with big dusky tone and dramatic intensity..”--Lawrence A. Johnson, Chicago Classical Review.org, June 4, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Palm Beach Opera
“…Marcellina, able sung by Jennifer Lane. I’ve seldom heard a Marcellina as good as Lane; her voice is pleasing on the ear and very supple, with a distinct timbre.” [Le Nozze di Figaro]--Rex Hearn, Palm Beach Artspaper, March 2, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Palm Beach Opera
“Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane as the ever determined, get-her-man Marcellina, was a comic tour de force. Her booming mezzo seemed somehow especially comic." [Le Nozze di Figaro]--R. Spencer Butler, Palm Beach Daily News, February 28, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Saul
“Jennifer Lane was deliciously over the top as the Witch of Endor ” [Handel’s Saul]--Scott Cantrell, The Dallas Morning News, February 6, 2009

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Orfeo with Capella Ministers in Spain
"Carles Magraner reunited a cast of singers with proven Baroque experience, offering a version of great quality....In the roles of Messaggiera and Speranza, he has brought to the charge, Jennifer Lane, who sang with power, passion and sensitivity of interpretation. The production included her dramatic entrances and exits, announcing the death of Euridice, and descending a high staircase to quide Orfeo through the gates of Hades.” [L’Orfeo, Castellón, Spain]--Nihil Sub Sole Novum, December 4, 2008

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“…(Jennifer Lane and El Mundo presented) a unique melody of spoken word, fiery melody and sensuous drama” [El Mundo’s ¡Zarzuela y Opera!].--Andrew Druckenbrod, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, November 8, 2007

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Everyman Jack
“He (Rod Gilfrey) was ably matched by mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, whose performance as Charmian combined voluptuousness, vulnerability and rage in a potent blend.” [Larsen’s Everyman Jack]--Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, November 13, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Everyman Jack
“…while Gilfrey unravels beneath London’s demons and despair, mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane smolders as the sensual and selfish Charmian, especially in the aria, “What about me, Jack?” [Everyman Jack]--Diane Peterson, Santa Rosa Press Democrat, November 16, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Terpsicore at Oberlin
“While the dancing was delightful, the singing was superb. Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane as Apollo performed coloratura arias with awesome technique and gorgeous tone. Costumed in satin breeches and a plumed headdress that made her look about 10 feet tall, she created a glowing god of music who dominated the stage.” [Handel’s Terpsicore]--Wilma Salisbury, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, July 3, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Das Lied Von Der Erde (Mahler)
“Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane's plush, dark-hued voice usually cut through and it was beautiful singing.” [Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde]--Elissa Poole, The Vancouver Globe and Mail, May 20, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Alto Rhapsody (Brahms)
“Jennifer Lane…is a mezzo-soprano, but her rich, roundly mature voice covered every inch of the range in the most operatic role that Brahms ever wrote. She surrounded every tone with a meaning that reached to its very depths.” [Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody]--Loren Tice, The Lexington Herald, March 25, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Both Jennifers (Lane and Ellis) are Baroque specialists who seamlessly shift into the more "popular" performance styles represented on this CD. Individually, they sing beautifully, and when they sing together, they discover a veritable "New World" of beauty.” [Villancicos de Navidad, El Mundo]--Robert Cummins, Classical.net, January, 2006

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Marvelous leading vocal department…sumptuousness of vocal timbre…playfully interacting in a nearly stage-worthy operatic fashion…Ms. Lane, by the way, also plays the castanets…” [Villancicos y Cantadas, El Mundo]--David Gregson, San Diego.com, December 10, 2005

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Staunton Music Festival
“And while his [Hercules] is the central character, it is Dejanira--"played by renowned mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane--"who shapes the dramatic course of the story. Lane’s towering, supple voice easily expresses the burning jealousy of her character while, at the same time, bathing the ear in pure wondrous sound.” [Handel’s Hercules at the Blackfriars Playhouse]--Charles Culbertson, The Staunton News Leader, August 31, 2005

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Schoenberg (NY Times)
“Superb singing also dominates the new Schoenberg CD, which features the mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane in performances of "The Book of the Hanging Gardens," with Mr. Oldfather as pianist, and of Schoenberg's luminous chamber orchestra arrangement of the "Song of the Wood Dove" from "Gurrelieder."….Ms. Lane and Mr. Oldfather enliven the cycle, articulating the suppressed eroticism and anxiety of an affair that seems to go nowhere…Although you can also hear Ms. Lane's dramatic portrayal of the Wood Dove in Mr. Craft's complete recording of "Gurrelieder," you may very well prefer to hear the work's essence in this finely shaped aria.”--David Schiff, The New York Times, March 14, 2005

Press Quotes—Jennifer Lane: Oedipus Rex (Glasgow)
“…with an impressively solid cast and men’s chorus, Lazarev drew a gnawing theatricality from this concert performance.” [Oedipus Rex, Royal Scottish National Orchestra] Kenneth Walton--The Scotsman, March 7, 2005; and “a strong line-up of soloists” [Oedipus Rex, Royal Scottish National Orchestra]--Conrad Wilson, The Glasgow Herald, March 7, 2005

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Oedipus Rex CD
“In the Philharmonia, he [Robert Craft] has a very willing orchestra, the colours blazing with a searing intensity. The soloists in Oedipus Rex [Naxos] are, by and large, excellent, with a particularly fine Jocasta from Jennifer Lane, the bottom end of her voice so fruity and fulsome.”--David’s Review Corner, November 1, 2004

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Gurrelieder CD
“Jennifer Lane’s sweetly mournful rendition of the Wood-Dove’s song [Gurrelieder]…”--Victor Carr, Jr., Classics Today, 2004

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Gurrelieder CD
“By a large margin this is the front runner in a most distinguished CD catalogue of Gurre-Lieders [Naxos], the recorded sound nothing short of sensational in its impact and inner clarity…. with Jennifer Lane's message of the Wood Dove growing to an unbelievably impassioned final moment that really does create a shiver of excitement.”--David’s Review Corner, November 1, 2004

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Caldara Cantatas
“The cantatas for solo voice also benefit from the quality of performance, in this case the beautifully substantial and resonant mezzo-soprano of Jennifer Lane. She responds eloquently to the text (the trials and triumphs of love --" translation helpfully provided),…while the short movements and strikingly vivid recitative of the three Op. 3 works fuel an attractive momentum.” [Caldara Cantatas, Gaudeamus]--Clare Mackney, Birmingham Post, May 15, 2004

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Caldara Cantatas
“Spirited and stylish performances… a beautiful mezzo-soprano sound, flexible and expressive…Vicino a un rivoletto, whose arias require her [Jennifer Lane] to match firstly the obbligato violin’s imitations of gentle breezes and twittering birds, and then the cello’s heartbroken amorous yearnings, suits her well. Here, as elsewhere, her deftly ornamented repeats in the da capo arias are a particular pleasure.” [Caldara Cantatas, Gaudeamus]--Elizabeth Roche, The Daily Telegraph, April 10, 2004

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Oedipus Rex CD
“Robert Craft leads a thrilling performance of Oedipus Rex, incisive, swift, and as mercilessly inevitable as fate itself. Jennifer Lane's Jocasta sounds younger than, say, Jessye Norman's, and her lighter touch gets around the notes better than many a bigger, heavier voice...Moving on to the shorter works,...Jennifer Lane's singing in the latter work [A Sermon, A Narrative, and A Prayer], leaves little to be desired.” [Stravinsky Oedipus Rex]--David Hurwitz, Classics Today, September 9, 2003

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Lute Song Recital
“The performances did more than due credit to the music. The motets were sung by Jennifer Lane with perfect balance and intonation and yet hearty tone. ”In a Garden So Green” was Jennifer Lane with David Tayler, playing theorbo. They have worked as a duo for some years, and here the clear, rich, plangent mezzo voice and the intimate accompaniment were too poignant for words.”--Michelle Dulak, San Francisco Classical Voice, July, 2003

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Hippolyte et Aricie (Rameau)
“The plot revolves around Phèdre's love for her stepson Hippolyte, who loves Aricie. There is tragedy (the suicide of Phèdre), but also nobility and warmth. Jennifer Lane's dark, lush mezzo and concern for every subtlety in the text enriched her portrayal of Phèdre…a sensitive and affecting performance that opened up a sunny window into the rarified world of 18th-century opera.” [Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie]--Tim Smith, The Baltimore Sun, February 3, 2003

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Hippolyte et Aricie (Rameau)
“Yet such was the prismatic variety of Rameau's musical invention -- and the sustained, luminous beauty of the performance--"that the time passed all too quickly. Indeed, I never wanted the afternoon to end…a cast of singers deeply schooled in the French baroque...Jennifer Lane brought the grand, aching manner of a classic French tragédienne to the role of Phèdre.” [Rameau’s Hippolyte et Aricie]--Tim Page, The Washington Post, February, 2, 2003

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Lute Song CD
“Disc of the Month: The Pleasures and Follies of Love brings us the mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane...The performers are, to the knowledgeable, the masters of their trade in our time. When such outstanding production meets equally outstanding musicians, the result should be no surprise. Such is the case here. With fine, expressive singing, this music is interpreted right on the mark. It is lively, thrilling, and fascinatingly performed.”--Robert Strobl, Alte Musik Aktuell, August-September, 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Purcell
“Jennifer Lane sang with agility and charisma [Philharmonia Baroque, Purcell’s The Faerie Queene]…”--Eric Valliere, Andante, September, 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Gurrelieder CD
“[Jennifer] Lane is an excellent Wood Dove , dramatic and expressive....I found it a more thrilling account than either of the rivals I have mentioned (Chailly, Rattle): more than either it carries something of the excitement of a live performance.” [Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder]--Michael Oliver, Gramophone, July, 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Cozzolani
“Concinant linguæ is a richly expressive solo motet that makes fiendish demands on the singer. On this recording, the consistently excellent alto Jennifer Lane, a singer whose dark, bottomless voice is matched by her expressiveness and intelligence, rises to the challenge.” [Cozzolani’s Mottetti Sacri]--Craig Zeichner, Early Music America, Summer 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Ariodante CD
“5.0 out of 5 stars…Glorious singing..." a baroque masterpiece...Jennifer Lane, as Polinesso, provides a creepily assured villain, descending to the baritone depths with aplomb...Altogether this is a very classy set indeed. For me, it is the best available…” [Ariodante, harmonia mundi usa]--Ed Beveridge, London, England, Amazon.com reviews, April 18, 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Telemann Cantatas
“…engaging performances that are characterized by impeccable execution and rich expression. [Jennifer] Lane displays fine vocal form, excelling in the poignant “Ergeuss dich zur Salbung” from Cantata 33.” [Telemann Cantatas]--Jen-yen Chen, Early Music America, Spring 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: St. John Passion
“Jennifer Lane splendidly conveyed and conjoined the grief and the jubilation of "Es Ist Vollbracht..."” [American Bach Soloists, St. John Passion]--Paul Griffiths, The New York Times, February 14, 2002

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Lute Song CD
“Jennifer Lane delivers these texts with a mature grasp of their nuance...she commands a vast expressive range and sings with delightful agility; her voice has a coppery brilliance...this recording is a treat for mind and ear.” [Koch, The Pleasures and Follies of Love]--Ellen Santaniello, Early Music America, Winter 2001-02

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: St. Matthew Passion
“Alto Jennifer Lane did some of the best work of the evening. Her aria “Erbarme dich”...was a high point of the evening.” [St. Matthew Passion, Honolulu]--Gregory Shepherd, The Honolulu Advertiser, April 2, 2000

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Mezzo Lane proved herself a singer in possession of that all too rare combination of stunning purity of tone and dramatic insight.” [Villancicos de Navidad, El Mundo]--Douglas Hughes, The Georgia Straight, Vancouver, December 23, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Mezzo Jennifer Lane provided a fine foil with her powerful voice and dramatic singing. I suspect she’d make a terrific Carmen.” [Villancicos de Navidad, El Mundo]--Deryk Barker, Victoria Times, December 20, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Dido with Chicago Baroque Band
“Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane, a well-known exponent of early music as well as 20th-century music, was Dido…given the flexibility and striking colors of Lane’s voice, she was a fine exponent of the role.” [Dido & Æneas, Seattle Baroque]--R.M. Campbell, Seattle Post-Intelligencer, November 1, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Harvey Gala at BAM
“After 32 years at the Brooklyn Academy of Music characterized by impeccable taste and shrewd showmanship, Harvey Lichtenstein went out last night in a hyperbolic blaze of impeccable taste and shrewd showmanship billed as ‘The Harvey Gala” at the Academy’s Opera House. There were African drummers, music by the singer-songwriters Paul Simon and Lou Reed, the opera singer Jennifer Lane.....” [Harvey Gala, BAM]--Peter Applebome, The New York Times, June, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Jennifer Lane was the intrepid mezzo-soprano....applying seductive inflections, luminous tonal resources and vocal agility to each moment....a shining presence...vocal wizardry....” [El Mundo tour]--Donald Rosenberg, The Cleveland Plain Dealer, March, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with El Mundo
“Judging from the audience’s response, [Jennifer] Lane stole the show....Lane sang five numbers that expressed not only a wide range of feelings but, in a tasteful way, her versatility. Her voice is warm, velvety and resonant.” [El Mundo tour]--Ralph O’Dette, The Columbus Dispatch,, March, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Caldara CD
“....the music and singing are simply gorgeous,....readers familiar with names in the singing circles might be surprised by the appearance of Jennifer Lane, a well-known mezzo with a rich discography. Her Giustitia is appropriately strict but never fierce, singing a beautiful aria in humbled response to the crying of the infant Christ [Caldara’s Vaticini di Pace].”--Chia Han-Leon, The Flying Inkpot, February 12, 1999

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Handel Arias
Fury With Red Sparkling Eyes....a stimulating recital by the American soprano Jennifer Lane, a warm rich voice (but not too plummy to detract from the dramatic qualities of her arias), displaying very good diction and stylish in matters like vocal declarations….:***(*)”--Phil Scowcroft, MusicWeb, February, 1999

“The star performer here is Jennifer Lane” [PGM, Divoti Affetti]--Continuo, October, 1997

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: Italian Solo CD
“Jennifer Lane achieves a masterful play of dark and light in sound. Her delivery in the many laments in the program is wonderfully direct, taking full advantage of the resources of the lyrics and the composers’ responses to them. One hears a human soul, not an artist at work. The two D’India songs, with their expressive use of chromaticism, are simply gems. Strozzi’s lament, Lagrime mie, took my breath away....Warmly recommended.” [PGM, Lagrime Mie]--Tom Moore, Fanfare, May/June 1997

“….making her first entrance trembling with suppressed fury and pain, (Jennifer Lane) set the theatrical standard for three-plus sparkling hours of encounters - comic, poignant, bellicose, conflicted, you name it - among these sharply etched people.” [Opera Omaha, Handel’s Partenope]--Heidi Waleson, The Wall Street Journal, September, 1988

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with Tempesta di Mare
“The one possibly great composer was Johann Rosenmüller, represented by the vocal work "O Dives omnium bonarum dapum" that shows him looking back to the more vocally rhapsodic manner of Schutz. Few singers project such an ideal union of clean vocal line and discreet vibrato as contralto Jennifer Lane. Music of this era repays subsequent visits on YouTube if only because it goes down so easily that you can miss the subtleties. But don't expect ever to hear Rosenmüller sung so well.”--"David Patrick Stearns, Philadelphia Inquirer, December 11, 2012

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane with Tempesta di Mare
"A female ‘male alto’ The program’s second vocal item introduced a major addition to Tempesta’s musical resources. The soloist, Jennifer Lane, is an alto with a voice that can best be described as a “female male alto. As we all know, the alto parts in Baroque works were sung by castrati. Nowadays, they’re usually sung by mezzo-sopranos. The small number of men who possess natural male altos always steal the show when they show up on a Baroque program. Their voices combine the color of the female alto with the extra power and resonance created by the male chest. Lane possesses the extra range and the distinctive timbre of the male alto. She isn’t quite as powerful, but that’s an irrelevant consideration in a chamber concert presented in a small space. Her text was a passage from St. Augustine: “O Thou Who Givest All Good Gifts," set by a composer, Johann Rosenmuller, who was born in 1619, the year after the Thirty Years War began. Lane’s voice colored it with one of the rarest and most distinctive sounds of Baroque music." --Tom Purdom, The Broad Street Review, December 11, 2012

Press Quote-Jennifer Lane: B Minor Mass
“….five fine vocal soloists….especially delightful were Jenni Samuelson and Jennifer Lane in the duet Et in unum Dominum.” [Santa Rosa Symphony’s "B Minor Mass"]--Niels Swinkels, San Francisco Classical Voice, December 15, 2012

UNT Getty Grant Residency-Udite Amanti!
 
I applied for and received a Getty Grant to bring 2 Italian colleagues to UNT for a residency that impacted a number of areas in the college: voice, early music, performance practice, music theory-basso continuo, accompanying, harpsichord, musicology, harp, and baroque chamber music. The duo taught 2 master classes, gave classroom lectures, coachings and rehearsed and performed with students and with me in a formal concert. We followed the week at UNT with 2 performances in New York City for the Helicon Foundation to packed audiences. The duo helped prepare 2 of my graduate students for the Carnegie Hall Arpeggiata workshop on 17th-century Italian repertoire. Both graduate and undergraduate vocal students sang in the master classes.

UNT Research Initiation Grant Recording with Collegium Faculty and Students
 
I applied for and received a RIG used to produce and record Handel arias and cantatas involving all of the UNT Collegium faculty, adjunct faculty, alumni, and students. The recording was later sold to Magnatune.com on contract with UNT, who receives the proceeds. This was large-scale project organizing. I handled the scheduling, arranging Winspear Hall, selection of the repertoire, coordination with all performers, and hired the recording engineer. I also created all of the CD materials including the booklet, handled the contracting, crediting of all performers, creation of the visual materials and pressing of a limited edition of hard copy CDs for the Collegium Director's retirement. The project trained the string players who were new to gut strings. The recording was preceeded by 2 concerts, 1 of which was a faculty concert and the other, with the Collegium Orchestra, was part of the Daniel Pearl Music Days events.

UNT Workshop: Amsterdam Meets Texas
 
Amsterdam Trio and UNT Early Music Faculty Collaboration. I took over coordination of events when Lenora McCroskey was on sabbatical, arranging scheduling, organizing master classes, rehearsals, and recruiting of prospective students into the course during the annual audition week. I taught master classes in period style and recitative, and performed in the faculty concert with Richard Egarr, Mary Springfels, Jed Wentz, Mimi Mitchell and UNT faculty.

World Voice Day at UNT
 
This was a collaboration between UNT's Voice Department, UNT Speech & Hearing, and UT Southwestern's Medical Voice Center for a presentation by UT Southwestern to promote vocal wellness among the student singers at UNT and to make them aware of what is available to them at UT Southwestern's Voice Center. I launched the initial coordination between the 2 institutions, discussing and determining the parameters with UT Southwestern's MD's and UNT Speech & Hearing staff. I created a template enabling all parties to facilitate subsequent communication and planning, shaping the project into: who, what, where, when, how, and getting some questions and answers to flow. When the event took place, UT Southwestern staff scoped UNT singers and discussed vocal hygiene. UNT Speech and Hearing staff attended as did UNT Vocal faculty and students. A smooth hand-off of leadership occurred, accommodating the professional travel for 2 of the 3 us UNT Vocal Division faculty who were involved in coordinating the event, but who could not attend it.

Yoonjoo Yang, DMA accomplishments during past 3 years
 
Upon completion of DMA in 2011, returned to Korea to form Ensemble Trois C, which has given dozens of performances of 20th and 21st Century music throughout South Korea, including a 100th Birthday celebration performance of Arnold Schoenberg's "Pierrot Lunaire".

Prof. Jennifer Lane

Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Lane is “a singer whose dark, bottomless voice is matched by her expressiveness and intelligence.” The press has described her singing as “clear, rich, plangent,” “compelling and dramatic,” and possessing “agility and charisma,” During her 40-year career, she has been featured by many of the most prestigious institutions and orchestras in the US and abroad. These include the Metropolitan Opera, New York City Opera, San Francisco Opera, Opéra Monte Carlo, Opéra du Caen, and the San Francisco Symphony, Minnesota Symphony, Jerusalem Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, St. Louis Symphony, and National Symphony, with conductors ranging from Robert Shaw, Robert Craft, Michael Tilson Thomas, Graeme Jenkins, Nicholas McGegan, Monica Huggett, William Christie, Mark Minkowski, and Andrew Parrott, as well as with period instrument ensembles such as Freiburger Barock, Philharmonia Baroque, Handel & Haydn Society of Boston, Les Arts Florissants, and Les Musiciens du Louvre, in concerts throughout the US, Europe, South America, and the Middle East.

Ms. Lane has fifty CD recordings to her name on a wide variety of labels, as well as two films: Dido & Aeneas (with the Mark Morris Dance Group and Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra) and The Opera Lover, a romantic comedy. Both films are available on DVD. Among her most recent CD recordings are Sravinsky’s Oedipus Rex (Jocasta), Schoenberg’s Gurrelieder (Waldtaube), and Schoenberg’s song cycle Das Buch der Hängenden Gärten, all for Naxos; The Pleasures & Follies of Love and Villancicos y Cantadas for Koch; and17th Century French Airs de Cour with Ensemble Orinda for for www.Magnatune.com.

In recent seasons, Ms. Lane premiered the lead female role of Charmian London opposite baritone Rodney Gilfrey as Jack London in Everyman Jack, in a newly commissioned opera by Phillip Littell and Libby Larson for Sonoma City Opera, about the life of author and adventurer, Jack London. She recently sang the title role of Carmen in the Astoria Festival’s production of the Peter Brook adaptation, and the role of Marcellina in Palm Beach Opera’s Le Nozze di Figaro under the direction of Mario Corradi with an all-Metropolitan Opera cast. In 2010 and 2011, she performed Opera Gala concerts with Nantucket Island Arts & Music. In 2013, she sang the mezzo solo role in Verdi's Requiem with the Hawaii Vocal Arts Ensemble and Hawaii Symphony, JS Bach's Cantatas for Solo Alto with the Washington Bach Consort, Handel Arias with the Baroque Orchestra of Colorado, and recorded the role of Athena in Darius Milhaud's Orestie, for Naxos.

Ms. Lane was the vocal soloist for the June, 2005 marriage ceremony of Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown, now Governor of California. She has toured extensively with the Grammy-nominated ensemble, El Mundo, performing Baroque Villancicos y Cantadas. She sang Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody with the Lexington Philharmonic Orchestra, and Das Lied von der Erde (Mahler), with the Turning Point Ensemble in Vancouver. She performed the highly virtuosic role of Apollo in Handel’s Terpsicore at the Oberlin College Baroque Performance Institute (BPI)’s production, which was mounted to commemorate BPI’s founder, James Boone Caldwell. She returned to Oberlin in 2011 to perform and record the Alto I solos in J. S. Bach's St. Matthew Passion, in celebration of BPI’s 40th anniversary. Ms. Lane was Alto soloist in St. Matthew Passion with Soli Deo Gloria in Chicago, John Nelson conducting, and was Alto soloist in the Baldwin-Wallace Bach Festival’s St Matthew Passion this past April, 2012, where she was chosen to give the publicly attended Vocal Master Class.
