Bio

Soprano, Dabney Ross Jones’ has sung in chorus for Porgy and Bess in 2007 and 2009 with LA Opera and San Francisco Opera. Both productions were directed by Francesca Zambello and conducted by John De Main. In 2011, Ms. Jones made her with Long Beach Opera debut singing Virginia Creeper in the Southern California Premiere of David Lang's "The Difficulty of Crossing a Field".

In 2008, she joined the Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers. With the group, she toured Germany singing first in the Berlin Philharmonic Hall, among other places throughout the country. In July of 2012, Ms. Jones attended the Salzburg Voice Festival. While singing in Salzburg, she discovered her passion for the Lied of Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. Her goals are to sing their music in recitals, solo with orchestras as well as singing in opera. In August of 2012, Ms. Jones covered the soprano soloist in Beethoven’s 9th symphony with the California Philharmonic.  Ms. Jones has stepped behind the stage to design costumes for Long Beach Operas’ “Queenie Pie” in 2014 and for The Magic Flute with Opera Pasadena.
