Described as “the kind of vocal velvet you don't often hear in contemporary music” displaying “rock solid technique" (Boston Phoenix) Jennifer Ashe, soprano, has been hailed by The Boston Globe as giving a performance that was “pure bravura...riveting the audience with a radiant and opulent voice.”
Ms. Ashe is a familiar face in the Boston new music scene, frequently performing on series such as Harvard Group for New Music, New Gallery Concert Series, and the Fromm Festival at Harvard. She is a senior member of the Callithumpian Consort and the soprano for the Boston Microtonal Society’s chamber ensemble NotaRiotous.
She is a founding member of the flute and soprano duo Prana with Alicia DiDonato Paulsen. Prana was chosen as a semi-finalist at the 2007 Gaudeamus Interpreters Competition. Recent projects include the role of Sarah Palin in the premiere of Say It Ain’t So, Joe by Curtis Hughes, with Guerilla Opera. She also sings with Blue Heron Renaissance Choir.
She holds a DMA in Vocal Performance and an MM in Vocal Pedagogy from New England Conservatory and a BM from the Hartt School of Music in Voice Performance and Music
Education. She was previously a member of the faculty at College of the Holy Cross. She is currently an Assistant Professor at Eastern Connecticut State University.
