It is my pleasure to introduce Jubal Joslyn, tenor, in his first performance at Church in the Forest. You have probably already noticed his beautiful voice coming from the back rows of the chapel since the Christmas Eve service. Originally from Imperial, Nebraska, he has performed to critical acclaim in cities across the country from Seattle to Los Angeles and New York to Miami. He was a winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions and a sponsorship from the William Randolph Hearst Fund and performed dozens of professional roles.
After a soft retirement from traveling for an operatic career, Mr. Joslyn has directed his focus on his home and family (wife Mirlene, Graham and Clara) and now loves to bring music to his community, performing musical theater, jazz, classical, and popular music for parties and events. Mr. Joslyn works as a golf coach in Carmel, CA. where he also enjoys spending time golfing, seeing local sites, and raising his two children.
Please give him your warmest welcome!
