Soprano Jacqueline Bolier has been praised for singularity and beauty of voice as well as a striking ability to connect with her audience. A graduate of the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music, Ms. Bolier has been seen by Philadelphia audiences in productions of Menotti’s The Counsel and Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and La Bohème. She was also featured in performances under the direction of Tito Capobianco at the Portland Opera. Equally at home on the concert and recital stage, Ms. Bolier has performed in performances at the Music Academy of the West and the Academie Internationale d’ete de Nice. Throughout the Northeast Ms. Bolier has given back to her community by performing on private stages and by working with the Turnaround Arts Institute, a program of the President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. Past awards include prizes from the Licia Albanese Foundation, the Queens College Vocal Heritage Competition, and the Art Song Preservation Society. Ms. Bolier can be heard on a live recording of Rorem’s Miss Julie on Albany Records.
Most recently Ms. Bolier performed Strauss' Vier letzte Lieder with the New World Symphony in Miami and returned to the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts on Damian Woetzel's popular "Demo" concert series.
