Soprano Jamie Chamberlin to Sing Benefit Concert at Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church

Greek-American soprano Jamie Chamberlin, a Santa Barbara native, will present a benefit concert and reception for the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church with pianist Renee Hamaty at 4 p.m. Dec. 6, 2015, in the church's reception hall. Tickets are $50 at the door or in advance by calling 805.683.4492.  

Called “spellbinding” by the San Francisco Chronicle, Chamberlin will return to her hometown for one night only to delight with opera, cabaret and American musical theater favorites.

Chamberlin, who appears regularly with LA Opera, has been recognized for her abilities as a singer and actress. Among her many credits, she recently starred as Marilyn Monroe in the US Premiere of Gavin Bryars’s Marilyn Forever at Long Beach Opera, for which Opera News praised her “shimmering tones” and “star-struck vulnerability.” 

The lyric-coloratura soprano will return to LBO in 2016 to sing Cunegonde in an exciting new production of Candide. She can also be heard on the Delos recording Terrain of the Heart, song cycles of Mark Abel, and in the leading role in Abel’s new opera Home is a Harbor, which takes place on California’s Central Coast, set for release by Delos in 2016.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
