LDS Soprano Jamie Baer Peterson to Perform in Salt Lake City

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Critically-acclaimed New York based LDS performing artists Jamie Baer Peterson, soprano, along with violinist Winona Vogelmann Fifield and composer/pianist David Fletcher will present a concert of their originial and traditional Holiday Chamber Music on Saturday November 24 at 7 p.m. at the Wasatch Presbyterian Church, 1626 South 1700 East, Salt Lake City. The concert will highlight selections from their new Christmas CD "Rejoice Greatly" which is available on

Peterson says the idea for a Christmas album and concert came while singing a performace of the "Messiah" at Lincoln Center in New York City, "Following the concert, an old friend of mine suggested that I do a Christmas album. He told me 'you need to do this for your children.' And so I did it!" The result of Peterson's efforts with Fifield and Fletcher is "Rejoicer Greatly," a compilation of fresh new arrangements of Christmas classics by Fletcher, including "Gesu Bambino", "Bring a Torch, Jeanette Isabella" and "Ave Maria". They are joined by a string quartet for moving arrangements of "Silent Night", "O holy Night" and Handel's original arrangements of "Rejoice Greatly" and "Come unto Him". This joyful collection is a heartwarming addition to the musical feast of Christmas.

Critically acclaimed for her clear and expressive soprano voice, Jamie Baer Peterson has appeared with opera companies and orchestras throughout the United States and abroad. She has been a soloist with the Dallas Symphony, Atlanta Symphony, New York City Symphony (at Carnegie Hall) and in two national broadcasts with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. Highlights of her operatic career include leading roles with New York City Opera, L'Opera de Nice, Santa Fe Opera, Central City Opera and Utah Festival Opera. No stranger to music theater, Ms.Peterson has appeared with the critically acclaimed ENCORES! productions, and in the PBS Great Performances "Ira Gershwin at 100". Jamie Baer Peterson is a graduate of the University of Minnesota and the Eastman School of Music. A native Minnesotan, she now lives in New Jersey with her husband and three children.
