Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra

We open our 2018-2019 season with a splendid Russian program featuring some of the greatest master composers. Our concert begins with a fanfare of the celebratory Festive Overture by Shostakovich. This is followed by Tchaikovsky’s immortal First Piano Concerto played by Daniel Hsu, a brilliant young pianist and prize winner from the Van Cliburn Piano Competition. The program ends with the majestic and humorous Fifth Symphony by Prokofiev.

Called “Spellbinding” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Greek-American soprano Jamie Chamberlin has been recognized for her abilities as a singer and actress. Recently, ArtsInLA hailed her Cunegonde in Long Beach Opera’s Candide as “Jaw-dropping.” Highlights of the 17-18 season include Hazel George in the US Premiere of Philip Glass’s The Perfect American at LBO and Chicago Opera Theater, a role debut as Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor with Pacific Opera Project, and a return to LBO as the Foreign Woman in The Consul opposite Patricia Racette. Additionally she will sing Faustine in Stewart Copeland’s (The Police) new opera The Invention of Morel, and Isolde in Frank Martin’s The Love Potion. This summer, she can be heard at the Walt Disney Concert Hall as a featured soloist with The California Philharmonic, alongside her fiancé, tenor Nathan Granner.

Jamie garnered national attention when she starred as Marilyn Monroe in the US Premiere of Gavin Bryars’ Marilyn Forever at LBO, for which Opera News praised her “shimmering tones” and “star-struck vulnerability”. A champion of new music, Chamberlin’s world-premiere performances include her LA Phil debut in Salonen’s Wing on Wing, Elyn Saks in The Center Cannot Hold with Pacific Opera Project/ UCLA, and Lisa in the Delos Recording of Mark Abel’s Home is a Harbor. Chamberlin’s expressive soprano can also be heard on the Delos recording Terrain of the Heart for which Fanfare Magazine hailed her as “a powerful operatic presence”, and in the Coen Brother’s 2016 film, Hail Caesar!, singing Offenbach’s Barcarolle during the epic water ballet scene.
