Soprano Maria Jette’s wide-ranging career has encompassed everything from early Baroque opera to world premieres, in the United States and abroad. Her orchestral resumé includes The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and the sadly defunct Ex Machina Antique Music Theatre in her home base of Minneapolis-St. Paul. There, she’s often heard with VocalEssence (led by conductor Philip Brunelle), Chamber Music Society of Minnesota, Minnesota Sinfonia, The Schubert Club and Lyra Baroque Orchestra. She was often heard nationally over the last 20+ years of Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion.
