Kendrick Jacocks

Kendrick Jacocks (dramatic tenor born 1971) is one of America's promising singers. Through the guidance of legendary teacher of bel canto, Virginia Zeani, Jacocks developed a large wide ranged tenor voice, which he uses with deep feeling and astute dramatic sensibility. The tenor has also studied with Mignon Dunn and the late Charles Riecker, both long time members of the Metropolitan Opera. Jacocks studied the operas of Richard Wagner with Roberta Knie, a Wagnerian soprano, particularly successful as Isolde in Tristan und Isolde. In 2005, Jacocks sang Verdi's Otello with Opera Donetsk, Ukraine and at the major summer festivals of Spain, including the Municipals of Torremolinos and Don Rodrigo. In 2007, he created the role of Giuseppe Verdi's "Otello" in "Strangers", an opera collage by Janka Voigt (dramaturge at Oper Wiesbaden) and Florian Lutz, presented in Berlin, Germany at the famous Art Deco styled Hebbel-Theater.

Kendrick Jacocks is the author of "Bel Canto: a Professional Manual -- Immediate and Practical", and "Anatomy of Bel Canto: Stroke of the Mask, Chest Support, and Proof for the Ancient Vocal Method". The former manual somatically explains the ancient method of 'bel canto' technique in a non-technical and practical style; the latter provides anatomical proof for his assertations on Bel Canto technique.
