Soprano Jamie Chamberlin, who has been praised for her "shimmering tones" by Opera News, is the co-creator and host of Sing Out Loud! along with her husband, tenor Nathan Granner and their rescue pup, Esther the Opera Dog. Jamie made her LA Opera main stage debut in 2004 singing the High Priestess in Aida and the Cretan Woman in Idomeneo, following an exciting professional debut singing the world premiere of Salonen's Wing on Wing with the LA Phil. Since joining the LA Opera Connects family in 2006, she created the role of "Soprano Jamie" in Open Door Days at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, and has represented LA Opera in legendary venues, schools, and historic locations throughout Los Angeles. A star of Long Beach Opera, Jamie has received critical acclaim for her portrayals in contemporary operas such as Candide (Cunegonde), Marilyn Forever (Marilyn Monroe) and The Invention of Morel by Stewart Copeland of The Police, for which Schmopera dubbed her a "superhuman soprano" for her soaring high notes. Jamie is a Delos recording artist and her voice can also be heard in the Coen Bros. 2016 film Hail Caesar! during the epic water ballet scene. She holds both a BA and MM from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, where she now serves as a Lecturer in Vocal Technique. Jamie also maintains a private voice studio, and will be an Artist in Residence at Manchester University in May 2021.
