Jennifer Goltz, voice

Soprano Jennifer Goltz specializes in the performance of new music, art song, and early cabaret. She has premiered works written for her by composers such as Evan Chambers, Andre Myers, Kristy Kuster, and Logan Skelton. Her ten-year affiliation with the Ann Arbor-based new music ensemble Brave New Works has yielded performances across the country of such works as Leslie Bassett’s Pierrot Songs, William Bolcom’s Briefly It Enters, George Crumb’s Madrigals, Bright Sheng’s Three Chinese Love Songs, and Alberto Ginastera’s Cantata para America Magica, as well as the premieres of Andrew Mead’s Let the Air Circulate, Carter Pann’s Women, and Sea Changes by Forrest Pierce. In 1999, she performed Luciano Berio’s Circles with Klangforum Wien at the Salzburg Music Festival, at the invitation of the composer. Her performance of Evan Chambers’ Three Tannahill Songs is available on Cold Water, Dry Stone, released in January 2001 on Albany Records, and her recording of Logan Skelton’s American Circus, with baritone Stephen Lusmann, will be released later this year on Centaur Records. This year’s performances include Arnold Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire with the Los Angeles-based ensemble inauthentica and Mozart’s Mass in C Minor in Vienna. Ms. Goltz holds Master’s degrees in Vocal Performance and Music Theory and a Ph.D. in Music Theory from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. In 2004 she joined the music faculty at Scripps College in Claremont, CA, where she teaches voice and music theory.
