Jaclyn Grossman


Hailed as an “exciting dramatic soprano” (Opera Canada) with a “command over a powerful range of expressive emotion” (The Whole Note), Jaclyn Grossman‘s 2023-24 season featured a series of exciting debut performances including her company and role debut as Freia in Das Rheingold with Edmonton Opera and her performance as the soprano soloist in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with the Buffalo Philharmonic under JoAnn Falletta. Future engagements will see Ms. Grossman debut as Nedda in Pagliacci and Nella in Gianni Schicchi with Opera Kelowna, and take on the fiendish role of Brünnhilde in Die Walküre with Edmonton Opera.

In the 2022-23 season, Ms. Grossman appeared as Gertrude in Hänsel und Gretel with Good Mess Opera Theatre and covered the role of Judith in Against the Grain Theatre’s production of Bluebeard’s Castle. During the 2021-2022 season, Ms. Grossman was a young artist with the Britten Pears Young Artist Programme, Banff Opera in the 21st Century, and Sewanee Summer Music Festival; during which she performed excerpts of the roles Krystyna in Two Remain, Helmwige in Die Walküre, Female Chorus in Rape of Lucretia, the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier, Anne in Singing Only Softly, Littler Daughter in Proving Up, and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. In the summer of 2022, Ms. Grossman performed the title role in Bas-Sheve by Henech Kon, a Yiddish opera in its North American premiere with the Ashkenaz Festival, the Milken Center, UCLA, and Yiddish Summer Weimar.

As a co-founder of the Likht Ensemble, she has performed recitals of Jewish Holocaust music at the Canadian Opera Company Free Concert Series, Pacific Opera Victoria, the Schulich School of Music, and with the Chattanooga Symphony and Chattanooga Public Libraries.
