Phoebe Jevtović Rosquist’s singing spans repertoire from the medieval to the contemporary, with a specialty in the baroque era.
Currently residing in California, she was born in Germany and grew up in Cleveland, Ohio. Phoebe began her undergraduate studies at the University of Louisville with the intention of becoming a jazz singer, but soon discovered that early and classical music was her true calling.
She has appeared as a soloist with the Waverly Consort, Voices of Music, American Bach Soloists, Musica Angelica, Bach Collegium San Diego, and North Holland Opera. Roles Phoebe has performed include Despina in Mozart’s Così fan tutte, Filia in Carissimi’s Jephte, The Bride (soprano soloist) in Stravinsky's Les Noces (Svadebka), Amphitrite in Locke’s Tempest, Cupid in Purcell’s Timon of Athens, Josephine in Gilbert and Sullivan's H.M.S. Pinafore, and the title role in Rossi’s Orfeo.
Among her varied collaborations are medieval/modern group Vajra Voices; baroque ensemble La Monica; medieval ensemble Cançonièr; art song with celebrated pianist Robert Thies; and early music and dance with Italy’s visionary Art Monastery Project and Bologna-based Cappella Artemisia. Phoebe has also toured the US and Indonesia with Gamelan X (a Balinese/hybrid world music ensemble), and sung Balkan & folk music with Kitka and VOCO.
Phoebe can be heard on a diverse collection of albums recorded on the Naxos, Nonesuch, Delos, Dorian, and Decca labels. Highlights include singing in studio sessions at the iconic Capitol Records in LA, and at Skywalker Ranch in Lucas Valley.
Phoebe completed her Master of Arts degree in Early Music Performance at the University of Southern California, and has edited a book of 17th century solo songs by Tarquinio Merula published by A-R Editions. Also a choral conductor, she has been an assistant director of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, directed a Gregorian chant choir in Newport Beach, coached music for several Shakespeare plays, directed the Art Monastery Coro in the U.S. and Italy, and currently co-directs the Women's Antique Vocal Ensemble (WAVE) in Berkeley with Shira Kammen.
