Jennifer Davis, mezzo-soprano
In the middle of a career as a Graphic Designer, Jennifer Davis fell in love with early music and her life has never been the same. She changed her path to take a second degree in Vocal Performance from Texas State University and now makes her way through life as a singer, musician, actress, director costumer, mask maker, artist and graphic designer.
Her recent credits include Music Director for The Taming of the Shrew and Rose Rage for The Hidden Room Theater. She was also Music Director and Costumer for A Servant of Two Masters with Penfold Theater Company. Most recently she was the mask maker for Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s La Descente d’Orphée aux Enfers with The Haymarket Opera Company of Chicago and for Purcell’s The Fairy-Queen with Amherst Early Music, and she played the role of Quince in Midsummer in Motion with the Austin Bike Zoo.
Jennifer is deeply grateful to be making music with Billy Traylor and the ABO Chorus, and David Stevens and St. David’s Episcopal Church. She studies voice with Sylvia Gallo of Austin Texas and lives in Austin with her husband, Jim, and adorable daughter, Rose.
