Jamet Pittman

Jamet Pittman (Vocalist) majored in Piano Performance at Oberlin Conservatory, but changed majors after she saw her first opera there. She then earned both B.M and M.M. degrees in Voice (Opera Concentration) from The Catholic University of America.
Soon after receiving her Professional Studies Certificate from MSM, she made her Carnegie Hall debut at the 75th Birthday Gala of Sir Neville Marriner with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields. Not long afterward, Jamet would be part of the first American broadcast of Porgy and Bess in a Live from Lincoln Center telecast with New York City Opera. Jamet has had the incredible experiences of singing under the batons of Julius Rudel, Kent Tritle, Sir Colin Davis, Loren Maazel, Zubin Mehta and Riccardo Muti, among others. She has particularly enjoyed working with choir directors like Gary Wedow and Donald Palumbo.

Since then, Ms. Pittman has performed as a classical soloist with several organizations, including the Opera Company of Brooklyn, Clarion Music Society, Baltimore/Washington Repertory Opera and Musica Sacra. Jamet was a cast member of 3 Mo’ Divas, which was showcased in a PBS special, and showed her ability to sing several styles of American music, including: opera, jazz, pop, musical theater, spirituals and R&B. She was an invited artist, performing as part of Jason and Alicia Hall Moran’s Work Songs (a musical exhibit) at the Biennale Art Festival in Venice, Italy.

Most recently, Ms. Pittman performed as a chorister in the Metropolitan Opera’s Grammy-winning production of Porgy and Bess in addition to other repertoire of the season. She has been a proud professional chorister of Musica Sacra, NY Choral Artists, Voices of Ascension and Melodious Accord, as well as the esteemed professional choirs of St. Ignatius Loyola, the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, and Temple Emanu-El, all of New York City.

As a guest of the singing group Western Wind, she was privileged to perform a Christmas concert last year with the Folger Consort, and she is honored to have the opportunity to work with this incredible ensemble again.
