She has taken part in master classes by renowned musicians including Lang Lang, Simon Trpceski, and Michel Béroff and has performed with a wide range of orchestras through the US and internationally including the Prague Philharmonia, Colorado Symphony, West Virginia Symphony, Cheyenne Symphony, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Boulder Philharmonic, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, and the Wiener Residenz Orchestra. She aspires to foster the arts and give through music, founding the Katie Mahan Foundation “Music for a Bright Tomorrow” in 2014 as a means of doing this.

JESSICA LENNICK is featured in Strauss’ “Overture to Die Fledermaus.” Lennick is an acclaimed soprano having performed at the Washington Camerata of DC, Chesapeake Chamber Opera, and Center City Opera Theater, among others. She was a finalist in the Annapolis Opera Competition and a finalist in the Great Lakes Regional competition for the Metropolitan National Council Auditions. She has also appeared at the Caramoor Festival covering the role of Giulietta and sang as a soloist with Roberto Abbado and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s in Midsummer Night’s Dream. The American Record Guide called her “stratospheric singing…stunning [as] she tosses off gleaming high E-flats and Fs” and the Baltimore examiner gleamed that she “is a complete package, including a terrific smile and stage presence to go along with her pleasing voice.”
