Heather Jones

Heather Jones is an American mezzo who blends seamless technique with “mischievous freshness and enthusiasm” to create vulnerable and relatable characters across languages and eras. To that end, Heather recently performed contemporary works in collaboration with Opera Fayetteville (2018 Contemporary Opera Festival), the Albany Symphony (“Preach Sister, Preach” by Evan Mack), Sign & Sing ASL (world premiere of “Universal Drum” by Brad Balliet for singers, 27-piece percussion, and Deaf Actors), and American Lyric Theatre (opera workshops facilitated by Mark Adamo); and brought new life to old favorites with Opera Company of Middlebury (L’elisir d’amore set in a 1920s speakeasy), Opera Philadelphia (Carmen), and Opera Louisiane (The Magic Flute). Heather has received training from Opera Saratoga, Seagle Music Colony, Bel Canto at Caramoor, The CoOPERAtive Program, Westminster Choir College, and Mannes School of Music, and is thrilled to work with Cantanti Project again after joining them for their 2018 summer retreat.
