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 sings “Incidental Music from A Midsummer Night’s Dream” with the Waterbury Symphony Orchestra, also Gilda in Rigoletto with MidAtlantic Opera, is guest soloist with Heartbeat Opera for a gala performance of Purcell’s The Fairy Queen, and in Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 with the Hartford Symphony Orchestra. She also sings Musetta in La bohème with Utah Festival Opera and Musical Theatre and is soloist in Carmina Burana (Craig Jessop conducting) with the American Festival Chorus in summer of 2015.
