She is a member of the Hamilton based ensemble Capella Intima, which specializes in performing exciting concerts of lesser known 17th century vocal and operatic music. In addition to performing with large and small ensembles, Jennifer also delights in the art of the solo recital and collaborates frequently with lutenist Magdalena Tomsinska and pianist Lorin Shalanko. Recent and upcoming engagements include a Copland’s ‘In the Beginning’ with the Da Capo Chamber Choir, a program of early Christmas music with Capella Intima and the KW Symphony Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah with the Hamilton Symphony Orchestra, Mozart’s Coronation Mass with Fanshawe Chorus London, J.S.
