Described as a “superb singer and artistic presence,” Rhoslyn Jones has established herself as an important presence on the operatic and concert stages of the world. Equally at home on the stage and in the teaching studio, Rhoslyn is the newly appointed voice teacher for the San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows. She is also on the faculty of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, Francisco Opera Merola Program, and the Chautauqua Institute in New York state. Career highlights include multiple roles at San Francisco Opera including covering Tosca in their new production of Puccini’s masterpiece, Manon Lescaut, Madame Lidoine in Dialogues of the Carmelites, and Strauss’ Elektra where Ms. Jones stood out as the “compassionate Fifth Maidservant, singing in a shimmering, ringing soprano.” She recently appeared as Liza in Tchaikovsky’s Pique Dame at West Bay Opera where she was described as, “A bright light cutting through murky skies, the singer tapped her arresting vocal prowess and vivid stage presence to produce a fully embodied study of a woman on the brink.”
As Musetta in La Boheme at both Arizona Opera and Pittsburgh Opera, “her true genius vocally came through in the final scene when she reunites the near-death Mimi with Rodolfo. Her voice was powerful and nuanced, particularly in the upper register, but it was the sheer humanity she brought to the scene that earned her the audience’s resounding applause.”Other roles include Tatyana in Eugene Onegin at Vancouver Opera, Mimi in La Boheme at Pacific Opera Victoria, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni at Chicago Opera Theater, and the title role in Floyd’s Susannah at Arizona Opera. A busy concert singer, Ms. Jones has also appeared with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, American Philharmonic, Anchorage Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet Orchestra, Philadelphia Pops Orchestra, Sacramento Orchestra, Santa Rosa Symphony, Silicon Valley Symphony, and Vancouver Symphony. Other teaching highlights include the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity: Opera in the 21st Century, voice faculty at The University of British Columbia, Director of the UBC Summer Vocal Workshop, Sonoma State voice faculty, and the Co-founder of the Bay Area Vocal Academy. Ms. Jones attended the famed Curtis Institute of Music where she received her Diploma in Opera Performance. She received her Master of Music and Bachelor of Music at The University of British Columbia. She attended the Steans Institute at the Ravinia Festival, and was chosen to attend the Merola Opera Program at San Francisco Opera twice before being selected for a coveted spot in the Adler Fellowship.
