Jackie Brown


I am thrilled to join NRS for my first season after spending three seasons with the Grace Church Chorale Society in lower Manhattan and five years with the University of Pennsylvania Chorale.

I grew up in Bethlehem, PA and performed in musicals from age four through high school. I spent a great deal of time singing in Pennsylvania district, regional, and state choir competitions. I have a B.S. in biology from Haverford College and a Ph.D. in Immunology from the University of Pennsylvania. I am currently a scientist at JDRF, the largest private funder of type-one diabetes scientific research.

Together with my husband and my sweet little French bulldog Mr. Pickles, I just moved to Jersey City after a few years in Manhattan and am LOVING it! I likes to travel, visit with family, eat, and of course spend inordinate amounts of time playing with my pup!
