Opera Orlando Online Features Greek-American Soprano Chamberlin

Acclaimed as a “superhuman soprano,” Greek-American opera star Jamie Chamberlin will join tenor Nathan Granner in kicking off the online events of the Opera Orlando Park Summer Concert series from her home in Los Angeles.

The event has had to change format to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdowns limiting public gatherings and concerts that don't allow social distancing, making it difficult for even established stars to work except for online.

Chamberlin made her solo debut singing the High Priestess in Aida and the Cretan Woman in Idomeneo, with Pla?cido Domingo. Her professional debut was with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, singing the soprano solo in the World Premiere of Esa­-Pekka Salonen?s Wing on Wing.

In March, when COVID-19 was rampaging across the world and United States, Chamberlin used Instagram to ask opera fans to support the industry hit hard by cancellations caused by the COVID-19 virus.

She said that people who bought tickets and who could get refunds should instead not take the money so that the singers can be paid or to donate it to music organizations or even to performers themselves so they won't lose their livelihood.
