Soprano

Jaclyn Grossman is defining what it means to be a portfolio artist. Hailed for her “unique voice type” (Opera Canada) and “command over a powerful range of expressive emotion” (The Whole Note), this year she joins the Rebanks Family Fellowship and International Performance Residency Program with Toronto’s Royal Conservatory of Music. As a Co-Founder of Likht Ensemble, Jaclyn will curate and perform in the Shoah Songbook, a concert series with the Harold Green Jewish Theatre, sharing music by Jewish composers from the Holocaust. This season, Jaclyn also looks forward to performing recitals with Pacific Opera Victoria, Toronto’s Arts and Letters Club, and Temple Sinai.

Equally committed to her work with nonprofits, Jaclyn is the Programs Associate for the Association for Opera in Canada and she is the Founder of The Phoenix Leadership Project. Jaclyn is the 2020 winner of the Ben Steinberg Musical Legacy Award and she is a graduate from McGill University’s Diploma in Opera and Voice program. Recent performances include Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito), Lady Billows (Albert Herring), and Madame Lidoine (Dialogues des Carmélites) with Opera McGill and excerpts of Lady Macbeth (Macbeth) and the Four Last Songs (Strauss) with the OperaFest at the Sewanee Summer Music Festival.
