Jocelyn Claire Thomas



Praised for her “staggeringly brilliant...etherial soprano” (The Source) Jocelyn Claire Thomas has engaged audiences with her haunting sound, musical intelligence, and unusual versatility. Recent solo highlights include Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the Salem Philharmonia Orchestra, “Susanna” in Le nozze di Figaro with Tacoma Opera, “Amore” in Orpheus and Eurydice with Inland Northwest Opera, and “Nedda” in Pagliacci with Opera Bend. Ms. Thomas was a featured soloist in Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Portland’s Bach Cantata Choir, about which Oregon ArtsWatch said “Ms. Thomas shone brightly as the angel.” Other highlights include Mozart’s Exsultate Jubilate with the Central Oregon Symphony, ”Marzelline" in Fidelio with the Astoria Music Festival, and Soprano Soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Handel’s Messiah with Bravo Northwest.
