About Jessamyn Anderson
With a songbook ranging from Puccini to Rodgers & Hammerstein and Debussy to Jason Robert Brown, Jessamyn Anderson is a soprano whose heart and voice lie in both musical theater and classical music. She made her professional debut at the Palladium in Carmel, IN as a soloist with the Indiana Wind Symphony and has continued to perform with the ensemble for five seasons. She has also been invited to sing for the Governor of Indiana, Boy Scouts of America, Relay for Life, Rotary Clubs, and other community organizations.

After being awarded Most Likely to Win American Idol in her high school graduating class, Jessamyn decided to pursue a more classical route in her studies at the Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Music in vocal performance. She studied with Scharmal Schrock, Mary Ann Hart, and Gary Arvin. During her senior year, she starred in IU Opera Theater’s production of South Pacific and was heralded as “all of the ‘cock-eyed optimist’ of a Nellie Forbush that you could wish for.” Her other IU Opera Theater credits include Cousin Hebe in H.M.S. Pinafore, and Margot in The Merry Widow as well as the choruses of The Last Savage and Falstaff. Also at IU, Jessamyn played the title role in the University Gilbert & Sullivan Society’s inaugural production of Iolanthe and premiered the role of Mooch in Mooch the Magnificent with Re-Imagining Opera for Kids, an organization devoted to bringing opera to students in the Bloomington area. As an undergraduate, Jessamyn was placed in Sylvia McNair’s graduate opera workshop and was invited to sing at special events with renowned faculty members such as Kevin Murphy and Wolfgang Brendel.
