About Me

Go-DIVA! Productions, Inc. Co-Founder, Artistic Director and Professional Vocalist, Jennifer Cooper, offers a unique, deeply varied repertoire of entertainment in an effort to blur the boundaries of genres and styles. Cooper's depth of professional training and performance experience, combined with her innate passion for communicating through song, provide the driving force behind GDPinc, which serves as a successful Music and Arts Entertainment Presenter and Educator.

Before taking the stage as a jazz, blues and pop songstress, Cooper sustained a successful, professional opera career after obtaining BA and MM degrees in Solo Vocal Performance from UMBC and Arizona State University School of Music. She received rave reviews for more than thirty principle roles and various concert appearances throughout Europe, Canada and the U.S., and accumulated coveted top prizes in competitions including the Metropolitan Opera National Council, National Symphony Orchestra Young Artists, and those hosted by several renowned opera companies.

After a lengthy hiatus from performing, due to a medical setback, she has since returned to the stage in popular music genres. Cooper has created, produced and performed in several original music productions, including her one-woman, auto-biographical musical cabaret, "Go-DIVA! ~ of Song, Silence & the Abuse of Chocolate" (written by LB Hamilton), and its sequel, "Go-DIVA! Act III: The Swan Takes Flight" (benefit event which raised $5,800 for Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra), Velvet Nights (international cabaret), Sentimental Journey (WWII era tribute), and Only Yesterday (Carpenters tribute concert). Regional audiences have enjoyed several sold-out performances of her self-produced “Opera Night” and "Broadway Night" programs, now a consistently running performance series.

In 2012, Cooper shined as a featured guest soloist at the renowned annual River Concert Series with the Chesapeake Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Jeffery Silberschlag, and soon after, joined forces with the Rappahannock Pops Orchestra, directed by her former music teacher and mentor, Maestro Kirk Wilke, for a full concert of jazz/cabaret.
 
Cooper and her current ensemble, GrooveSpan, remains in high demand for various venues, music festivals, concert series, private events and fundraisers while she also serves as a highly respected private voice instructor and vocal technique master class facilitator in the southern Maryland region. She is a current member of the National Association for Teachers of Singing (NATS).

Cooper is also a current member of the Charles County Arts Alliance, Maryland State Arts Council, a lifelong member of Phi Kapp Phi, and serves on the board of the Southern Maryland Youth Orchestra & Choir. She is a dedicated advocate for youth music education and programming.
