Jamie Barton, 2024 Filene Artist in Residence
Critically acclaimed by virtually every major outlet covering classical music, American mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is increasingly recognized for how she uses her powerful instrument offstage – lifting up women, queer people, and other marginalized communities. Her lively social media presence on Instagram and Twitter (@jbartonmezzo) serves as a hub for conversations about body positivity, social justice issues, and LGBTQ+ rights.

This season, Ms. Barton fulfills a long-held dream, creating a role in the world premiere of a new opera by Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer. Based on a little-known true story of two women who infiltrated the Confederate White House during the American Civil War, Intelligence opens the 2023/24 season at Houston Grand Opera. She also brings her acclaimed interpretation of Amneris to Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Aida and performs the Gurre-Lieder in a gala concert for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra’s 75th anniversary. Elsewhere she appears as the mezzo soloist in Mahler Symphony No. 2 with Orlando Philharmonic and that same composer’s Symphony No. 8 for an already sold-out run with Orchestre de Paris.
Jamie Barton will present a Master Class with Wolf Trap Opera’s artists on July 10 at 7 PM at the Center for Education. Admission is free, reservations required.
