Jennifer Crippen, alto, currently lives in Houston where she performs and teaches private voice and piano. Ms. Crippen completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s in Vocal Performance, the latter with Louisiana State University where she was featured throughout her studies, bringing “commanding stage presence and musical excellence to every role.” Most prominently, she portrayed Angelina in La Cenerentola, Der Komponist in Ariadne auf Naxos, Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro, Stephano in Roméo et Juliette, and Orfeo in Orfeo ed Euridice. At LSU, Jennifer was also featured as Erika in Barber’s Vanessa, a role she was fortunate to reprise with Nevada Opera. Internationally, Ms. Crippen has been seen in concert in Fuzhou, China, as Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia in La Paz, Bolivia, and again as Angelina in the Republic of San Marino as well as São Paulo, Brazil. Equally at home in concert, Jennifer has been frequently seen in as a soloist with Baton Rouge Symphony, Chorale Acadienne, the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra, Opéra Louisiane, and outside the Gulf Coast region with Baltimore Opera a la Carte. She also performs locally with Opera in the Heights and is a member of Six of One, Houston’s premier all-female a capella ensemble. Jennifer has sung with the Houston Chamber Choir since 2015.
