Praised by San Francisco Classical Voice as a “strikingly appealing, outstanding, accomplished performer,” and by Performing Arts Monterey Bay as a ”gifted vocal artist who sings with an unfettered authority…”, Soprano Carolyne Anne Jordan has sung roles with West Edge Opera, Mission City Opera, Open Opera, Livermore Valley Opera, and Goat Hall Productions, showcasing her versatility in roles by Britten, Mozart, and Puccini, among others. Miss Jordan has also performed with the San Francisco Opera Chorus, BASOTI program, the West Coast Opera Workshop, and the Opera Scenes Program at Holy Names College. Equally in demand as a concert artist, she has performed in such far-flung locations as Yosemite National Park and Antigua, Guatemala.
Throughout her singing career, one of the comments she most often receives is how good the listener feels when she sings. Being a natural-born “helper,” and realizing there was a way she could help others while using her voice, C.A. decided to focus specifically on singing healing music and meditations, while still performing classical music when possible. Most recently she sang in a live-streamed concert in late August, 2020, for which she also served as Artistic Director. Upcoming projects include a recorded meditation series which will be available by the end of 2020.
In addition to her teaching, solo, and voiceover work, she has enjoyed collaborations with several international electronic music artists, including composing and recording vocals with Addex, Vernon & DaCosta, and Manuel Tur.
