The soprano Janeanne Houston is a versatile performer and one of the busiest artists in the Northwest region of the United States. Her extensive repertoire spans the Baroque era to the present, and she has championed the work of living composers. She has worked under the batons of many fine conductors including Gerard Schwarz, James DePreist, Sidney Harth, Dean Williamson, Richard Sparks, and Miguel Harth-Bedoya. An active recitalist, she is often the featured guest artist on concert series programs and music festivals across the nation. Also at home on the opera stage, she has performed the roles of Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail, Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, Violetta in La Traviata, Blanche in Dialogues of the Carmelites and Micaëla in Carmen.

She has recorded many of Dan Locklair’s songs and vocal works, and in 2006 commissioned a song cycle from the composer titled Cummings’ Suite, settings of poetry by the beloved poet e.e. cummings. A recording of world premières by living composers titled The Shining Place was also released in 2006, as was a recording for Zimbel Records titled Songs of the Cotton Grass that features the music of composer Hilary Tann. Other recordings include So Great a Joy (2001), Living Mysteries (2002), The Chamber Music of Dan Locklair (Albany 2004), and So Much Beauty (2004). The managing and founding member of Northwest Artists and the recording label Elmgrove Productions, she has also been a member of the voice faculty at Pacific Lutheran University since 1989.
