Jolie Rocke is a Houston-based soprano whose talents have taken her from a Carnegie Weill Recital debut to European tours and Far North Queensland, Australia. Noted by the Hartford Courant as a ‘gifted, versatile vocalist who’s as much at home soaring on opera arias and celestial hymns as she is getting down with funky blues and earthy jazz,’ Rocke’s passion is sharing the gift of song with the world and drawing from her life experience when she performs or works with aspiring young artists. Maya Angelou noted, ‘Jolie Rocke sings with such passion ‚Ķ and compassion!’ Her passion for music and her desire to pass it on to students lead her to produce concerts, conduct master classes, direct community arts programs, and train aspiring singers as a private voice teacher and coach. Programs: Singing HERstory; Opera, Behind the Scenes!; Songs of the African American Soul; Sing, Langston!; Good News; The Science of Singing. Acclaimed as a singer and educator, Rocke was honored by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame. ‘Rocke can make her queen-size instrument of a voice fit cozily and expressively in an array of soulful sounds,’ as she does in her CD, Rock of Ages: Hymns for the Soul.
