Whilst studying at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama she was a prize winner in the Kathleen Ferrier Memorial Competition and was given a prestigious Royal Society of Arts Decca Prize which enabled her to complete her studies in Rome and Vienna.
She gave her debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Arbate in Mozart`s `Mitridate` to wide critical acclaim. She was invited to perform this role at the Teatro Regio, Turin and later returned to the Royal Opera House to undertake further roles. She has also performed for English National Opera, Scottish Opera and for the Carl Rosa Opera Company.
She has sung in concert and oratorio across the globe and in major London venues which included a performance of Elijah at St Paul`s Cathedral conducted by Kurt Masur. Jacquelyn has been a soloist with the BBC Concert Orchestra in over sixty recitals for BBC radio. Other notable concerts for the BBC include a celebration of English Song from the Haymarket Theatre, Drury Lane and a live broadcast from the Mermaid Theatre in London together with her daughter, West End musical theatre singer Abigail Jaye. Television appearances include broadcasts in Hilversum, Stockholm, Rome, Hungary and for ITV. Recent concerts include a recital at Dodington Park House for Sir James and Lady Dyson.
