American-born soprano, Jill Feldman, is a leading artist in the field of medieval, baroque and classical performances.  Her highly expressive style combines an agile vocal technique with close attention to the dramatic content, beauty and meaning of the text.


In 1981, at the request of William Christie, Jill Feldman joined Les Arts Florissants in Paris.  With this renowned ensemble she created the title-role of Charpentier’s Médée. Feldman has appeared under the direction of such distinguished musicians as Frans Brüggen (Haydn’s Creation), Andrew Parrot (Handel’s Carmelite Vespers EMI), Jordi Savall (DeLalande Motets), and René Jacobs (Cesti Orontea, Cavalli Xerses Harmonia Mundi).  She sang the role of Minerva in Monteverdi's Il Ritorno d'Ulissi in Patria at the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam, and the role of Belinda in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas for the Opera du Rhin in Strasbourg.  She performed in the Bach Magnificat at the Palais Garnier, Opéra de Paris as well as in Rameau's Anacréon for the Edinburgh Festival and the Opéra de Versailles.


Feldman studied in San Francisco, Basel and Paris and graduated from the University of California, Santa Barbara.  She currently teaches at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague, at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Zürich, for the Accademia di Musica Antiga in Portugal, and for the Amici della musica di Firenze.
