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.

Kids Discover Music

It is undeniably true that schools throughout our community depend on the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra for music programs to fill gaps in the current system. Bring the full experience of The Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra to local students with a program designed to integrate musical concepts and activities into existing classroom curriculum. Kids Discover Music (KDM), previously know as Inspire the Desire for Music, brings BSO musicians directly into the classroom to allow children to experience a powerful introduction to the world of music. With KDM, students within our community have gained access to a rich musical experience and arts programs they are no longer receiving in schools due to budget cuts.

The Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra (BSO) has an exciting Young People’s Concert series (YPC’s) hosted at the Rabobank Theater. Elementary students, secondary students, and teachers from across Kern County have enjoyed our YPC’s for more than thirty years.
Through our partnerships with the Kern County Superintendent of Schools and the Bakersfield City School District we have inspired young people to have a lifetime love for music. The BSO performs three themed concerts each season which are specifically designed for young audiences and meet scholastic standards set by the State of California. These concerts are a perfect way to entertain and educate students at the same time, making learning fun!
