Mezzo-soprano Jennifer Kosharsky has been described by the press as “an excellent actress, with a dark-timbered, mezzo-soprano voice” of “outstanding vocal range.” Her portrayal of Princess Eboli in Don Carlo inspired the press to call her: “a powerhouse mezzo…velvet voiced…a supple mezzo [that] raised the roof.” The Elgin Review says, “At first, the dark, polished tone of mezzo-soprano Jennifer Kosharsky reminds you of exquisite contralto voices from another continent and century, but her strength and control in the upper register proves she can cover either part with her impressive tessitura.”

In 2023 Jennifer joined The Joffrey Ballet as the vocalist for their Anna Karenina at the Chicago Lyric Opera & The Kennedy Opera House. In June 2023 Ms. Kosharsky returned to West Suburban Symphony to sing Santuzza / Mascagni’s Cavalleria Rusticana and Beethoven’s Mass in C Major with the CBA Symphony Orchestra. In 2022 she joined Folks Operetta performing the role of Wirten in the American premiere of Korngold’s Die Kathrin.

Signature opera roles include Eboli in Don Carlo (Verdi), Preziosilla in La Forza del Destino (Verdi), Amneris in Aida (Verdi), Adalgisa in Norma (Bellini), Dalila in Samson et Dalila (Saint-Saëns) and the title role in Bizet’s Carmen. Solo concert work includes Brahms Alto Rhapsody, De Falla’s El Amor Brujo, Verdi Requiem, Beethoven Choral Fantasy with Music of the Baroque, and a Holiday Concert & Opera Gala with the Traverse Symphony Orchestra. Her European debut was with Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9.
