Jennifer’s big event

by Jeffrey Carter

We were delighted and very proud this week to host Jennifer Johnson Cano ’06 in a benefit recital at the Sheldon.  We raised several thousand dollars for the Nigh Opera Scholarship Fund.  We brought an alum home to sing for a very appreciate audience.  And we produced a concert at the Sheldon to no small critical acclaim.

Sarah Bryan Miller penned a very positive review in the Saint Louis Post-Dispatch, noting a “rich, beautiful voice, consistently produced from top to bottom and sensitively used.”  Said Miller, “Her direct approach and vocal fearlessness combined with a remarkable skill in characterization to make for a memorable evening.”

Read the entire review.

Next stop for Jennifer?  More amazing singing, and a Carnegie Hall recital debut this month!
