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." In 2014-15 she is engaged to sing the incidental music from Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra.
