Jennifer McCabe

   Professional Membership Status
Choirs

From Margaret Harrod, Lincoln Park High School, Choir Director:

Jennifer McCabe is always my first choice when I need an accompanist for my vocal students or choirs. She plays with amazing technical ability and wonderful expression. Her sight reading skills are tremendous; Jennifer is able to play anything I put in front of her. My students truly enjoy working with her. She treats them with professionalism and kindness. Jennifer is a pleasure to work with!

General:
Rick Ferguson, Executive and Artistic Director, The Musical Offering

“Jennifer is personable, highly-skilled, both as a pianist and teacher, and a great collaborator. I highly recommend her, as a teacher and colleague."


Opera :

From Val Kuznetsov., Opera on Tap, Chicago Chapter, Managing Divo

"Jennifer is one of the best people that I ever worked with. She has an extremely professional attitude. Her devotion to the projects and eagerness to improve and learn makes her a great colleague to work with. I would re-hire Jennifer over and over and recommend Jennifer to anybody!!!"

From Katie Miller, Soprano:

"I've sung with many pianists in my days, but I was absolutely impressed with Jennifer when, without a single rehearsal, we were able to readily perform a 13-page aria like we'd been working together for years! Not only is she a wonderful pianist, but she's got the personality that drives you to be your best. Her sincerity and giving nature shine right through."

From Robin Bradley , Soprano:

"Jennifer has been a joy to work with! As a pianist and accompanist, she is eager to aid vocalists in working through pieces as well as perfecting repertoire pre-performance. She is kind, easy to get along with and skillful. I've enjoyed working together and getting to know her through my study of classical music!"

From David Laub , Bass:

"Ms. McCabe is the new Gerald Moore – an infinitely sympathetic accompanist who can adjust the mood and tempo of any piece of music to fit the individual needs of a singer in real time – Brava! "

Victoria Holland, Lyric Soprano,
“I enjoy working with Jennifer - she is a solid accompanist. Upbeat personality, beautiful musicality, and high standards.” September 2010



Musical Theater:

From Melissa Foster, Senior Lecturer, Music Theatre Program, Northwestern University

"Jennifer could not be more responsible- prompt, friendly, efficient- a JOY to work with in every way!"

From Mike O'Mara, Music Institute of Chicago, Musical Theater Program, Music Director:

“I hired Jennifer as a Music Director for a high-energy group of kids over a summer [2009]Musical Theater camp. She took to the job with a very high level of energy and made sure that her decisions and coaching always reflected the high level of integrity and nurturing personality for which our program has become known. She did an admirable job at a position to which she admitted she had little previous experience; her honesty and hard work are qualities which would lead me to hire her again!”

From Kimberly Hilton, Vocalist:

"Jennifer was great to work with! She's easy going and has VERY reasonable rates. A major plus, her cat is freakin' awesome!"

From Lauren Warnecke, Choreographer, JCC of Skokie, "Hello! Dolly":

"Jennifer came in mid-production as a replacement music director , and gracefully integrated herself into the production process. Jennifer is a workhorse, organized and very detail oriented. As the choreographer, she made my job easy by seamlessly adjusting tempos, vamping, transposing and cutting the score as necessary. I would not hesitate to collaborate with her again."

From Terri Hilton, Director, JCC of Skokie, "Hello! Dolly":

"I hired Jennifer as a last-minute replacement Music Director for a production of Hello Dolly. Taking on the position two weeks into the process, Jennifer worked quickly & diligently to learn the musical score and to assess the vocal-coaching needs of our performers. Thanks to her skill, efficiency and commitment, the transition was seamless and the show was a success."


Weddings

From Yung-Yi H.:

"Jennifer: Thanks so much for participating in our wedding. You sounded great and I definitely appreciated your incredible flexibility in working with us, despite the craziness and uncertainty of the situation. Especially in light of the fact that I only had found and booked you within 2 weeks of the wedding. You gave some good input and suggestions on the music based on what I told you were my preferences, and it was so helpful for you to play the pieces for me over the phone.

The vocalists appreciated your professionalism as well in helping them go through the music and work out the cues. Coming from professional opera singers (and as a former vocal accompanist myself in college) that is high praise. I'd be glad to serve as a personal reference should you need one. I will definitely refer you to other brides on theknot.comas well as any friends that should find a need for a pianist for any reason. Thanks so much again! "

From Jennifer and Jeff:

"Thanks so much for such a great job! All the guests commented on how well you guys played and how great the songs sounded. Everything turned out great! Thanks again..."

From Ingrid:

"We really enjoyed your music. It was exactly what we imagined. You accommodated all of our requests professionally and were a pleasure to work with. We'd definitely recommend you to others. Thanks again!"

From Christopher Tuazon, freelance musician:

"I've performed wedding ceremonies with Jennifer. She's always been a great help in coordinating musical choices and last minute changes whenever they occur, and our clients have been consistently pleased with our performances."
