Jessica SaundersJessica Saunders is currently working on her Doctorate of Musical Arts degree in Vocal Performance at the University of Iowa. She holds her Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Northern Iowa and her Bachelor’s Degree from Wartburg College. Jessica also currently works at the Performing Arts Production Unit for the Dance, Theater, and Opera departments at the University of Iowa. Saunders is working on creating a training program for singers and teachers. Jessica loves to travel, spend time with friends, read, dance, bike and of course, SING! In 2010 Saunders traveled to Moscow, Russia and Ramstein, Germany as an intern with Camp Adventure.

In December, Saunders appeared as a soprano soloist for the Southeast Iowa Symphony’s performance of Handel’s Messiah and will be performing the roll of The Fairy Queen in the University of Iowa’s summer production of Iolanthe. She has also judged at the Bill Riley Talent Search at the Iowa State Fair and appeared with Wartburg Choir, Wartburg Opera Ensemble, UNI Opera Ensemble, Quad Cities Opera and performed in the Winter Opera at the University of Iowa. Jessica has been performing since she was seven and teaching privately since 2007. Growing up, she competed in the Bill Riley Talent Search at the Iowa State Fair for fifteen years. She was a Sprout Champion in 1999 and a Senior Finalist in 2007. She loves the competition because it gives youth all over the state the opportunity to perform and practice their craft. Jessica is comfortable teaching both classical voice and musical theater style to students of varying skill levels from ages 6 to adult. She believes in building confidence in her students and strives to work with each student to explore their individual skills and talents.
