Fifty years ago, Jeanie graduated from Greenwich High School in Connecticut and in October Jeanie became, after five decades, a “local celebrity” in a newspaper article featuring her as a focal point of the question “where is she now?” Discussing what has happened to her over the course of her varied career with the article’s author, Christina Hennessey, gave Jeanie a chance to reflect on the circuitous path that has brought her to her present life as a singing voice expert.

Recent travels took her to Boston where she did a master class for the Voice Department at Berklee College of Music for students and faculty members including Somatic Voicework™ teachers Kaoruko Pilkington and Lisa Thorson. Over the weekend she worked with other Somatic Voicework™ teachers and with students of Kris Adams, Professor at Berklee and also Wellesley College. The following weekend she was back in NYC at an open house and a day of working with Somatic Voicework™ teachers and three of their students in the Teacher Support Group. As always, everyone had fun, enjoyed yummy snacks and fine company and the great discussion about vocal pedagogy for CCM styles.
Dr. Irene Bartlett, Professor at Queensland Conservatorium in Brisbane, Australia, and fellow CCM expert, was in town recently and visited with Jeanie, also stopping in to observe her Teacher Support Group in New York. She and Jeanie will be featured in an article by Dr. Melissa Forbes of ArtWorx University in Toowoomba to be published in April in the Journal of Singing. Dr. Forbes is visiting Jeanie for two weeks of study in December and to do initial planning for Jeanie’s return to Australia in 2019 at the University of Southern Queensland.
Jeanie is once again working with Daniel Reichard who is preparing to do an upcoming one man holiday show. Daniel was the original “Bob Gaudio” in Jersey Boys on Broadway and has been performing nationally with The Midtown Men for the last several years.
