Jenifer Rose Weber, BM Performance (Voice) Indiana University-Bloomington and MM Performance (Voice) University of Missouri-Kansas City is a Southwestern Pennsylvania native. After earning her Master of Music from UMKC, she returned to Pittsburgh to start a family. Since returning, Jenifer has performed with local companies in various capacities. She made her Pittsburgh debut with Undercroft Opera as Frugola (Il Tabarro) and La Zelatrice (Suor Angelica) and went on to perform many roles with that company including the title role in Giulio Cesare in Egitto. She has performed with Microscopic Opera (Miss Baggot in Little Sweep, Mrs. Borden-cover in Lizbeth) and with Resonance Works in their inaugural season as a Witch in Macbeth and various ensemble presentations. Jenifer has been a chorister with the Pittsburgh Opera since 2011 and most recently appeared in Nabucco with her 2 children.
Before moving home to Pittsburgh, Jenifer appeared regularly in Kansas City, Missouri, most notably performing Dorabella (Cosi fan tutte), Juno (Semele), and Dido (Dido and Aeneas). It was a thrill to appear as Suzuki (Madame Butterfly), Marcellina (Le Nozze di Figaro), and Mrs. Ott (Susannah) in Eureka Springs’ Opera in the Ozarks. Jenifer has also sung internationally in Salzburg and Graz, Austria and Orvieto, Italy. Jenifer is also interested in New Music and will be participating in several New Music Festivals in the near future. Jenifer began teaching Kindermusik for Miss Kathy in 2010 when her son was 16 months old. She teaches each age group from 0-4 at the Squirrel Hill JCC.
