DUO is an exciting musical adventure with two artists who perform literature that taps into the human spirit and mirrors everyday life.

From the sensual journey of love and life through Debussy’s Ariettes Oubliées to the poetic sadness and joy evoked in Enrique Granados’ Canciones Amatorias, soprano Jamie Reimer and pianist Stacie Haneline explore their friendship and life’s journey with you for a night of true musical connection.

Passion, color, and exquisite musical language are featured in selections of Schubert Lieder. The evening concludes with Natural Selection, a song cycle by the award-winning American composer Jake Heggie.

Soprano Jamie Reimer performs regularly in opera, oratorio and recital venues around the United States, and recently returned from a recital tour in Sydney, Australia. She has performed with Opera Omaha, Omaha Symphony Chamber Orchestra, Lincoln Symphony, Hastings Symphony, and the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra.

With a particular interest in contemporary American art song, Reimer’s research focuses on the life and work of composer Robert Owens. In 2012, she gave the world premiere of Owens’ 4 Sonnets to Eleonora Duse, composed for her voice, and is currently editing the North American edition of his opera, Culture! Culture!. Reimer’s work has been published in the Journal of Singing and Pan Pipes, and she is a frequent lecturer throughout the United States and abroad for conferences of the National Opera Association, National Association of Teachers of Singing, Festival 500: The Phenomenon of Singing, the International Symposium for Performance Science and the International Congress of Voice Teachers.

Reimer serves as assistant professor of voice at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln. Her responsibilities include teaching applied voice and courses in opera techniques. She earned the doctor of musical arts and master of music degrees at UNL, and the bachelor of music at Hastings College.
