Soprano Jennifer Rowley is acclaimed worldwide for her unforgettable voice and remarkable stage presence, singing a richly varied repertoire that includes many of opera's greatest heroines. The past several seasons have taken Ms. Rowley to new audiences across the globe. During the 2021/22 season, she made her house debut at Opéra de Rouen in her signature role of Leonora in Verdi's Il Trovatore in a modern production directed by Clarac and Deloeuil’s ‘Le Lab’, with a highly praised cinema and television broadcast across France. She returned to the Semperoper Dresden to star as the title role of Puccini's Tosca, and reprised her critically celebrated Amelia Grimaldi in Verdi's Simon Boccanegra at Opernhaus Zürich. Ms. Rowley also made her house and role debut as Hannah Glawari in Lehár's The Merry Widow at Palm Beach Opera, for which critics raved about her performance of the famous ‘Vilja Lied’ writing that it "should be placed among the greatest performances of this aria."

Ms. Rowley’s most recent seasons have included her avid mentorship of the next generation of opera’s young artists, taking the torch from her mentor Martina Arroyo. During the summer of 2022, she created and implemented her inaugural season of Jennifer Rowley’s Aria Bootcamp in Sarasota, FL, and holds an annual artist residency at her alma matter, Baldwin Wallace College Conservatory of Music. Ms. Rowley led an internationally acclaimed Virtual Artist Residency with Fort Worth Opera during the COVID-19 pandemic, where she held weekly themed Zoom masterclasses, engaging lectures, and casual Instagram Live chats with other singers, directors, coaches, and opera industry professionals. The success of that series led her to create an exclusive, six-week Virtual Audition Intensive.

She has also been recognized by many international competitions. She was awarded the 2012 Richard Tucker Career Grant, was one of the top prize winners in the 2013 Licia Albanese Puccini Foundation Competition and the 2011 Opera Index Vocal Competition, a winner of the 2011 William Mattheus Sullivan Musical Foundation awards, a first prize-winner of the 2011 Gerda Lissner Foundation International Vocal Competition, a grant winner of the 2011 Licia Albanese-Puccini Foundation Competition, and the winner of the 2010 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions for the Michigan District.

Ms. Rowley holds a Master of Music degree from Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music and a Bachelor of Music degree from Baldwin Wallace College Conservatory of Music. She holds a Certificate of Performance Achievement from the Instituto Superior del Arte of the Teatro Colón, and was a Max Kade Scholar at Middlebury College’s German for Singers Program. Ms. Rowley serves as an advisory board member for Classical Singer Magazine.
