Praised in the Baltimore Sun for her “impressive voice”, Maryland native soprano Laura Whittenberger was also named one of Baltimore’s Must-See Musicians by Baltimore Style magazine. Laura sings in concert, opera and musical theater performances across the country. This season, Laura has performed in the MD/DC area in Signature Theatre’s A Little Night Music and Annapolis Shakespeare Company’s Kiss Me, Kate. She also recorded a sequel to a new album of Yeats-inspired Irish folk/art songs by R. Driver, Songs that Sing in the Night, that will be available on iTunes this fall. In Maine this summer, she covered Pamina in Die Zauberflöte with the Winter Harbor Music Festival and will appear next as Mabel in The Pirates of Penzance at the Theatre at Monmouth. Upcoming concert solos include Beethoven’s 9th Symphony in NYC in December. Laura enjoys art song repertoire, and has performed as a duo with harpist Jacqueline Pollauf for French art song recitals and other concerts over the past couple of years, and together last year they were winners in the Montpelier Arts Society Recital Competition. Laura holds degrees in vocal performance from Peabody Conservatory and Indiana University. For more info, reviews and updates, please visit www.laurawhittenberger.com.

Jacqueline Pollauf, harpist, has been praised for playing with “transcendent ability” (The Sybaritic Singer), “glittering beauty” (Lawrence Budman, critic for the Miami Herlad), and “most satisfying elegance” (The Toledo Blade). Past performances include the premiere of a new work for harp and voice at Carnegie Hall in 2016; and appearances at the Eleventh World Harp Congress in Vancouver, Canada; the Library of Congress and the National Gallery of Art, both in Washington D.C. Jacqueline has been a featured soloist with the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, the Newark Symphony Orchestra, and the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra, among others. She has given solo recitals throughout the East Coast, and whether performing standard repertoire, lesser- known works, or her own compositions and transcriptions, Jacqueline is always exploring the versatility of the harp.

2018 will see the release of two new recordings, Songs and Dreams for solo harp; and Music for Cello and Harp with cellist Dariusz Skoraczewski. Past recording credits include Bouquet, a solo album featuring standard and contemporary works, hailed as “lovely...glittering somewhere in secluded forest glades” (Clayton G. Koonce); Music from Three Continents with the Scottish Voices ensemble of Glasgow, Scotland; delight/delirium featuring works by composer Fernando Benadon; and Voyage, a recording of avant-garde harp and saxophone duos with saxophonist Noah Getz, praised by The Sybaritic Singer, “both... play with nuanced style and impressive technique.”

An active composer and arranger, Jacqueline recently completed an artist residency through the Baltimore County Public Library for the pursuit new compositions. Additionally, she is the founder and director of the Baltimore Harp Camp and serves as president of the Baltimore Chapter of the American Harp Society. Jacqueline holds Master and Bachelor of music degrees from the Peabody Conservatory and is based in Baltimore
