Pamela Jones

Winner of the Best Supporting Actress Award at the Dundalk (Ireland) International Drama Festival for her portrayal of Sister Mary Amnesia in the musical, Nunsense, Pamela Jones enjoys bringing diverse and colorful characters to life. She had the opportunity to do this earlier this year when she debuted the roles of Freia in Das Rheingold with Trilogy: An Opera Company at NJPAC and Annie in Porgy and Bess at the Charles Bronfman Hall in Tel Aviv, Israel. She also sang the Strawberry Woman in Haifa, Israel, reprising a role she sang in 2016 at the Semperoper in Dresden and at the Kölner Philharmonie in Cologne, Germany. Last summer she also debuted Clara in Porgy and Bess in Cologne and went on to sing it at the Staatsoper Hamburg. She has been privileged to have performed in many premieres, including title role in the world premiere of The Bird that Wants to Fly with Trilogy: An Opera Company in 2015. Another premiere was the role of Miss Rose in the New York premiere of Séance on a Wet Afternoon by Stephen Schwartz at New York City Opera, and during the twelve years that she sang with the company she portrayed many roles in their Contemporary American Opera Lab (VOX), education division, and on the main stage. Miss Jones made her New York solo recital debut at Merkin Concert Hall. She has been a soloist at the Spoleto Festival USA 2016 in Charleston, South Carolina, Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, the Royal Danish Theatre in Copenhagen, with the American Symphony Orchestra at the Bard Festival, with the Springfield (MA) Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Chamber Choir, the Pioneer Valley Symphony, CONCORA, the Arcadia Players, the Connecticut Opera Alliance, the Opera Company of Brooklyn, Commonwealth Opera, L’Orchestre Philharmonique Sainte Trinité in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, the Berkshire Lyric Opera, Longar Ebony Orchestra, Sing Through Central, Opera Noire of New York, and the American Spiritual Ensemble. In 2011 Ms. Jones completed a recording of Scott Joplin’s opera Treemonisha with Paragon Ragtime Orchestra for New World Records, and when she sang the title role with Trilogy: An Opera Company, the company immediately re-engaged her to sing Spirit McNair in “4” by Trevor Weston. The lyric coloratura soprano is a frequent guest lecturer for Explore New York where she sings a program entitled “Arias in My Life”. Her faculty recitals of German Lieder were well received at the Jewish Community Center on the Palisades in 2014 and 2015 where she taught voice and managed the Music Discovery Partnership for the Thurnauer School of Music. Ms. Jones earned her Master’s Degree in Voice Performance from Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
