Noted for excellence in early music, Marjorie has sung Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque music across the US, including the Boston Early Music Fringe Festival, and she is founder and artistic director of the Denver Early Music Consort. Her work with DEMC is establishing her reputation as a thoughtful concert programmer, music researcher, and lecturer – critic Robin McNeil wrote on the music blog OpusColorado, “she is not just a fine contralto, she is also a scholar of music.”
Since moving to Denver from Washington, DC in 2011, she has appeared as a soloist with Seicento Baroque Ensemble, Boulder Bach Festival, Colorado Bach Ensemble (singing Bach’s solo alto cantata “Vergnügte Ruh”), Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado (including the role of Testo in Stradella’s La Susanna), St. Luke’s Bach Festival in Fort Collins, Pro Musica Colorado Chamber Orchestra, St. Martin’s Chamber Choir, and St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral Choir. She returned to DC and the Kennedy Center Concert Hall stage in March 2014 as Noble Orphan 3 in Strauss’s “Der Rosenkavalier” with the National Symphony Orchestra, and in July she premiered the role of Beatriz in Boulder composer Paul Fowler’s opera “Behold the Man.” Marjorie’s 2014-15 concert schedule includes appearances with Boulder Chamber Orchestra, Denver Eclectic Concerts, Seicento, Baroque Chamber Orchestra of Colorado, and Luminous Thread Opera Theatre.
