Jena Carpenter, BMus’09, recently completed her first year in the master’s degree program at the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Mannheim in Germany. After one year in the masters program, she was awarded a scholarship to attend the Bayreuth Festival by the Wagnerian Society of Mannheim. She has been contracted in her first professional engagement with The National Theater Mannheim as Servilia in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito and has been cast in four leading roles at the Hochschule: Adina in L’elisir d’amore; Ännchen in Der Freischütz; Despina in Cosi Fan Tutte; and Sister Constance in Dialogues des Carmêlites. In addition, she has scheduled two debut concerts in Nevada and Arizona for 2011. She is a former voice student of Jonathan Retzlaff.
