Jolle GreenleafHailed as a "golden soprano" by the New York Times, Jolle Greenleaf has established herself as a leading specialist in 17th and 18th vocal music. She completed her Master's degree at the Mannes College of Music, and soon after received the coveted Beebe Fellowship to study at The Royal Conservatory in The Hague, The Netherlands.  Known for her expressiveness on stage, she is often engaged as a recitalist.  She has appeared in over 90 Bach cantata and she is frequently heard in baroque masterworks, including all of J.S. Bach's oratorios, John Blow's Venus and Adonis, Handel's Alexander's Feast, Jephtha and Messiah, Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610, Purcell's King Arthur and Fairy Queen with many ensembles and orchestras such as Apollo's Fire, Clarion Music Society, Concert Royale, Folger Consort, Harvard Collegium, New York Collegium, NYS Baroque, Parthenia, Trinity Consort, and Vox Vocal Ensemble.  Among this year's highlights are performances honoring Monteverdi's Vespers of 1610 and the first 400th anniversary performance in the US with the Green Mountain Project.

Also in 2008 Miss Quinn appeared in The Wordless Music Orchestra's performance of Gavin Breyer's Sinking of the Titanic, under the direction of Brad Lubman. She is a member of the Trinity Church Wall Street Choir in which she is a regularly featured soloist; notable performances include Monteverdi Vespers of 1610 under the direction of Andrew Megill, and the role of "Venus" in King Arthur under the direction of Owen Burdick. Upcoming projects include the premiere of James Blachly's song cycle for two Sopranos based on texts from Moby Dick with Nacole Palmer and Benedicte Jourdois. Miss Quinn is a North Carolina native, and studied at Cincinnati College Conservatory of Music.
