Classical Music
Janelle Gelfand on the classical music scene

Janelle's pen has taken her to Japan, China, Carnegie Hall, Europe (twice), East and West Coasts, and Florida. In fact, Janelle was the first Enquirer reporter to report from Europe via e-mail -- in 1995.

Janelle began writing for the Cincinnati Enquirer as a stringer in 1991 while writing a Ph.D. dissertation in musicology at the University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music. She joined the Enquirer staff in 1993.

Born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she graduated from Stanford University, Janelle has lived in Cincinnati for more than 30 years. In her free time, this pianist plays chamber music with her circle of musical friends in Cincinnati.

She covers the Cincinnati Symphony, May Festival and Cincinnati Opera, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, chamber music ensembles, and as many recitals and events at CCM and NKU as possible.

Singers from the University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music swept the awards at the Opera Guild of Dayton Tri-State College Vocal Competition, organizers announced today.

Andrea Shokery, a senior from Columbus, won first prize and $2,500, and was also the audience favorite, earning another $400. Soprano Katelyn Lee, a junior from Springfield, Mo., won second place and $1,500. CCM students Marshall Dean and Megan Aylward were finalists, winning $150 each.

All four students study with Barbara Paver at CCM.

The other finalists winning $150 each were Adam Cioffari from Indiana University and Alyssa Cox from Oberlin College. The six singers were winnowed from a field of 32.

The competition, now in its 20th year, was held in the NCR Renaissance Auditorium at the Dayton Art Institute. Judges were Thomas Bankston, general and artistic director of Dayton Opera; Andreas Melinat, artistic administrator of the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Brian Horne, associate professor at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
