Soprano Jane Shivick in recital
Celebrated dramatic soprano Jane Shivick with pianist Malcolm Halliday presents a veritable feast of songs from many languages, including works by Richard Strauss, Rachmaninoff, Granados, Faure, Handel, Mozart, Dvorak, and other composers, as well a smattering of Broadway!

"Soprano Jane Shivick is among this region's most accomplished and versatile musicians and has garnered high praise for her extraordinary vocal abilities." - Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra

The New York Times has praised the dramatic soprano for her character and vocal richness (Winners Concert-Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions). The Boston Globe affirms that Shivick has a voice evenly glamorous throughout its compass and an engaging stage presence (Museum of Fine Arts Concert). Ms. Shivick had the privilege of debuting and performing the role of La Donna in Opera Providences world premiere of Enrico Garzillis Michelangelo to critical acclaim at the Providence Performing Arts Center, RI where she sang perhaps the finest song in the show, the touching Deep in Your Heart (The Providence Journal).

An accomplished singer, Ms. Shivick is equally at home in opera, oratorio, concert, and recital. The Boston Herald states, Shivicks slightly exotic-toned soprano sounded lovely in an aria from Massenets Hťrodiade. But she particularly impressed with her remarkably subtle delivery of the famous Un bel di from Puccinis Madame Butterfly (Boston Esplanade Concert).

Orchestral highlights include such works as Mozarts Mass in C Minor, Beethovens Symphony No. 9, Brahmss Requiem, Handels Judas Maccabeus, DvoŠks Stabat Mater, Rossini's Le petit messe solennelle, Dubois' Seven Last Words of Christ, Schubert's Mass in Aflat, Vaughn Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem, and Verdis Requiem, for which she was praised for her brilliant tone (Worcester Telegram & Gazette).

Among her many credits, Ms. Shivick made her Boston Symphony Hall debut as a soloist with the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra under the batons of Keith Lockhart, Steven Mercurio, and Federico Cortese, and recently returned to work with Maestro Lockhart for the 2012 "Holiday Pops" concerts. She has been a featured soloist with the Boston Civic Symphony, New Philharmonia Orchestra, Massachusetts Symphony Orchestra, Rhode Island Civic Chorale & Orchestra, Symphony Pro Musica, Heritage Chorale, Assabet Valley Mastersingers, Stow Festival Chorus & Orchestra, Brown University Orchestra, Worcester Chorus, and the New World Chorale. Ms. Shivick made her New York City operatic debut singing title role of Richard Strauss' Ariadne auf Naxos with dell'Arte Opera Ensemble. Paul Pelkonen of Super-Conductor wrote, "As Ariadne, Jane Shivick displayed a powerful instrument that was almost too big for the tiny theater. Her best moment was the low note ("Totenreich!") in 'Es gibt ein reich.' She sang majestically in the final scene with Bacchus." In addition, Meche Kroop of Opera Insider wrote, "The singers all did justice to their roles and acted them convincingly; The stars of the opera serie have tantrums that are recognizable and therefore hilarious. Suffice it to say that there was a true ensemble feel which can only be created by a long period of rehearsal and labor."

The Boston Globe declares, Soprano Jane Shivick boasts a big voice with a metallic ring, bold high notes, and an ardent delivery. She has all the goods and is on her way to great things (Boston Civic Symphony Concert). Following a performance of Schubert's Mass in Aflat with the Rhode Island Civic Chorale and Orchestra, the Providence Journal avows, Shivick proved that she has a velvety side and that shes always right on target.

As a 1998 National Winner in the renowned Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, Shivick was awarded a debut performance and NPR broadcast with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra under the baton of Sir Charles MacKerras. In 1997, she also garnered second prize in both the Metropolitan Opera New England Regional National Council Auditions and the Annamaria Saritelli-DiPanni Bel Canto Vocal Scholarship Competition. Subsequently, she has been awarded Encouragement Grants through the Gerda Lissner International Vocal Competition and has furthered her vocal studies at the Aspen Music Festival & School as a member of the Aspen Opera Theater Center where she covered the role of Donna Anna in Mozarts Don Giovanni conducted by Maestro Julius Rudel. Ms. Shivick has also toured with Sherrill Milnes and Friends as a member of the V.O.I.C.Experience Program in Orlando, FL.

Ms. Shivick has also been heard in concert with Opera Providence, Cape Cod Opera, and Watershed Opera in Seattle. She continues to collaborate with her former student, soprano Sarah Callinan, in presenting "Dueling Divas," a concert of high-octane arias, art songs, and duets, originally conceived by Cape Cod Opera's director, David McCarty, designed to highlight Shivick and Callinan's teacher/student relationship which has led them to work together as colleagues.

In recital, Ms.Shivick has been heard on Boston's WGBH, Worcester's WICN, and Cape Cod and the Island's WOMR radio broadcasts. In addition, her performances have also been broadcast on WCUW Radio, 91.3FM in Worcester, MA. Following a solo recital, the Sturbridge Times wrote, Jane is a well-known soprano whose credits are too numerous to mention. Whether Schubert, Strauss, Schumann, or Sondheim, Jane's voice filled the hall, no matter what she sang. It is an understatement to say that the evening was a success." Most recently, Jonathan Blumhofer of the Worcester Telegram & Gazette wrote, "Soprano Jane Shivick packed many of those same qualities into her readings of songs by Rachmaninoff, Brahms, and Richard Strauss. She has a huge range, as was demonstrated rather explosively in Rachmaninoffs Zdes khorosho and Ya zhdu tebya, and a pleasing variety of dark shades in her tone (nicely displayed in a pair of Brahms duets with baritone Ron Williams). To my ears, though, she was at her best in her closing trio of Strauss lieder, especially Allerseelen and Zueignung, which allowed her to fully channel the lyrical and dramatic sides of her musical personality" (Schubertiad concert).

Ms. Shivick is a graduate of Assumption College and has furthered her musical studies at The Hartt School (University of Hartford). She is currently a student of English dramatic soprano, Jane Eaglen, and spent many years as a student of internationally-renowned soprano Maria Spacagna, in addition to vocal studies with American soprano Ruth Falcon and bass-baritone Gary Kendall, a former professor of the University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music.

In addition to performing, Ms. Shivick continues to teach in her private studio in Worcester, MA while conducting vocal workshops and masterclasses for audiences throughout the New England area.
