    Heather Jones (they/them) is a South Carolina-born and Brooklyn-based mezzo soprano who performs classical and crossover repertoire with “mischievous freshness and enthusiasm.” Shortly before quarantine, Heather joined Opera Philadelphia for Verdi’s Requiem, premiered Michael Genese’s “Feeld Songs” set to poetry about the trans experience, and starred in a gender-fluid adaptation of Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella titled “Happily Never After.” This season Heather placed 4th and won the Sherrill Milnes American Opera Award in the American Traditions Vocal Competition. They will collaborate with the Savannah Voice Festival as a soloist and Festival Artist.
