Jennifer Fair’s combination of elegance, charm, and sophistication paired with spellbinding vocals continue to make her a favorite with audiences everywhere!
Like many performers, Jennifer got her start early on starring in many of the great Broadway children’s musicals. However, she distinctively remembers seeing a local production of the operatic masterpiece “Carmen” as a young girl which attracted her to the power of classical music and it quickly became her muse. After completing her degrees in Music and Political Science at the University of Kentucky, she worked in various opera apprentice programs honing her skills and gaining invaluable experience. Upon moving to New York, she began working in regional theatres performing musical theatre and opera on the East coast and the Southern US. Subsequently, she was hired as the lead soprano by nationally acclaimed vocal jazz ensemble “Pieces of Eight” under ICM Artist Management. The ensemble’s unique blend of classical and jazz vocal fusion paved the way to venues in the New York cabaret scene and ultimately a national tour.
With the help of her mentors, her family, and a desire to diversify her musical interests, she has gone on to study and perform with many prestigious opera programs such as: The Toscana Opera Festival in San Gimignano, Italy, The International Opera Festival di Roma, the Opera Orchestra of New York at Carnegie Hall, Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center, Chautauqua Institute, Brevard Music Center, and many of the nation’s respected regional houses and theatres.
Her latest endeavor is the development of a one-woman show for which she has been enthusiastically received by various arts organizations, universities and all of the top luxury cruise lines. Jennifer is both compelling and agile in her character portrayals whether she may be recreating the ardent laments of Piaf in Paris or celebrating the passionate strains of Puccini’s beloved heroines. She approaches the World’s greatest romantic melodies straight from the heart transpiring into a delightful performance of nostalgic bliss and celestial singing not to be missed!
