Praised by Opera News for her “shimmering tones”, Jamie Chamberlin enjoys a diverse career as a soprano, producing artist, and sought-after interpreter of new works; notably, as Marilyn Monroe in the US Premiere of Marilyn Forever at Long Beach Opera. Favorite performances include the title role in POP’s haunting 2017 production of Lucia di Lammermoor, Cunegonde in Candide, Isolde in Le Vin Herbe, and Hazel George in the US Premiere of The Perfect American by Philip Glass.
In collaborations with composer and rock legend Stewart Copeland (The Police), Jamie is celebrated for her “superhuman soprano”(Schmopera) in The Invention of Morel (Faustine), and Satan’s Fall (Raphaella); both premiered alongside husband, tenor Nathan Granner. The couple are co-creators and stars of Sing Out Loud! for LA Opera Connects, a vibrant web-series produced entirely from their home during the Global Pandemic.
Chamberlin’s varied career includes appearances with LA Opera, LA Phil, Chicago Opera Theatre, SF Opera, Pasadena Symphony, and the Bakersfield Symphony Orchestra. Jamie is a Delos Recording Artist (Mark Abel’s Terrain of the Heart and Home is a Harbor), and her recognizable voice can be heard during the epic water ballet scene in the 2016 Coen Brothers film Hail, Caesar! A respected and emerging voice teacher, Jamie earned her MM from UCLA, where she serves as Lecturer in Vocal Technique.
