MinnPost is proud to announce the participation of noted soprano Maria Jette in MinnRoast 2015. The versatile Jette is able to lend her voice to early Baroque opera, Edwardian parlor music, Latin American chamber music, Tin Pan Alley and the Great American Songbook. Jette has performed with numerous orchestras and choral groups worldwide including the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, New York Chamber Symphony, the Handel Choir of Baltimore, Choral Arts Society of Philadelphia, the Portland Baroque Orchestra and the Los Angeles Master Chorale.

Locally you may have seen her perform with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Chamber Music Society of Minnesota, VocalEssence, the Minnesota Orchestra and on “A Prairie Home Companion.” What will we hear from the stage of the Historic State Theatre? A bit of opera or will it be Gershwin? Order your tickets today to find out on April 24.
