ABOUT JENNY LINDSEY
Hailed by The New York Times for her "bright-hued soprano and apt comic timing," Jenny Lindsey is sought after in houses throughout the country. With repertoire ranging from Mozart to Verdi to Strauss operetta, her singing has been described by critics as "the vocal highlight of the evening" (The Classical Review), "impressive" (Ticket Sarasota), and "aptly radiant" (The South Florida Classical Review).
In a prolific career spanning from concert work to opera, she has sung under the batons of Victor DeRenzi (Sarasota Opera), Riccardo Muti (Chicago Symphony Chorus), Bernard Haitink (Chicago Symphony Chorus), Christopher Fecteau (dell'Arte Opera Ensemble), Keith Chambers (Opera New Jersey), Christine Flasch (Music By the Lake), and Alessandro Sicilliani (Columbus Symphony).
In a career highlight, Jenny made her Carnegie Hall debut as the soprano soloist in Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater in May of 2023.
It is Jenny’s great honor to share Grammy honors with the Chicago Symphony and Chicago Symphony Chorus for their 2011 recording of Verdi's Requiem, conducted by Riccardo Muti.
One of Jenny’s most rewarding experiences was to debut Mozart’s three DaPonte Heroines in nearly consecutive seasons (La Contessa in Le nozze di Figaro in 2015, Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte in 2016, and Donna Anna in Don Giovanni in 2018). Other favorite roles include Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Leïla (Les Pêcheurs de Perles), Élisabeth de Valois (Don Carlos), and Magda (La Rondine).
When she is not traveling the country singing opera, Jenny appears weekly on YouTube for Sunday services at Madison Avenue Baptist Church, where she is the soprano soloist (https://mabcnyc.org/). She makes her home in Manhattan with her husband, Bass-Baritone Eric Lindsey and their beautiful children. In their spare time, they happily cook for and feed large groups of NYC-transplant opera singers and Bohemians of all types.
