Lyric Soprano

Jamie Groote


"Groote brought a palpable stage presence to the role, and her singing was the best of the evening... there is real, and justified, self-confidence in her voice, an attractive warm tone, and happily secure high notes."

 - Mark Morris,

Edmonton Journal

Groote particularly enthralled during her “big aria,” “Come scoglio,” with her confidently assured, agile voice easily navigating its treacherous leaps, as did her later “Per pietà, ben mio perdona,” that stirred the soul.

- Holly Harris

"Groote’s tone possesses a captivating finesse"

- Taylor Long,
