Soprano Jennifer Paulino has performed regularly with Magnificat since singing the role of Daniele in Scarlatti's oratorio La Susanna in February 2007. Praised by the San Francisco Classical Voice for her "warm", "vibrant", "glowing", and "limpid" voice, Jennifer is a standout among emerging Baroque vocalists and performs regularly with Magnificat. Equally renowned for her stunning voice and her dramatic capability, Jennifer is increasingly in demand as a concert soloist.
Solo highlights include Handel's Acis and Galatea, Francesca Caccini’s La Liberazione di Ruggiero, Haydn's Philemon und Baucis, and Charpentier’s Les Plaisirs de Versailles. She is an accomplished chamber musician, and has appeared as soloist with Leiden Baroque Ensemble (Netherlands), Catacoustic Consort (Cincinnati), the Southwest Florida Symphony, Voices of Music, Pacific Collegium, and Nova Silesia (Poland) among others.
Jennifer is a founding member of the Baroque ensemble Les grâces, specializing in historically informed performance of 17th- and 18th-century music. In 2010, Jennifer won second prize at the Gerhard Herz Young Artists Competition for her interpretation of works by Bach, Mozart, and Handel. Solo highlights for the upcoming season include Handel's Messiah with Seraphic Fire (Miami), and Bach's Mass in B minor with the San Francisco Bach Choir. Jennifer holds degrees from Westminster Choir College and The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, Netherlands.
