Boston Conservatory at Berklee welcomes Shawn Marie Jeffery, vice president of classical and creatives at UIA Talent Agency, for a master class and discussion.

This past year, Jeffery joined the team at UIA Talent Agency, having been an integral part of the ADA Artist Management team since 2005. Deeply dedicated to providing the next generation of artists with the tools to succeed, she often speaks with emerging artists, sharing her insight on business and artistic trends within the industry in lecture and master class settings. She has presented at many American opera companies and academic institutions, and has served as a judge for the Opera Birmingham Vocal Competition, Opera Connecticut’s American Opera Idol, and the AMICI Vocal Competition. She also has been a panelist for feedback auditions at the Classical Singer Convention.

During her career as a mezzo-soprano, Jeffery performed throughout the United States. A recipient of the Heinz Rehfuss Singing Actor’s Award, she was well-regarded for her keen dramatic abilities, and now shares her dramatic tools and insights into character development in private consultations and coachings through her studio, Stage and Self.

This event is open to Berklee students, faculty, and staff with a valid Berklee ID, and invited guests only.  

Shawn Marie Jeffery is presented as part of Boston Conservatory at Berklee’s Opera Innovators Series in partnership with the Boston Lyric Opera.
