Jennifer Li has been singing with Arete since 2017. She grew up singing in church choirs and traveled internationally with youth choirs (a favorite was being invited to sing in Bethlehem on Christmas Eve). In college she sang with the Harvard-Radcliffe Collegium Musicum and the Radcliffe Choral Society under the direction of Jameson Marvin. She has sung most of the major requiems and the Monteverdi Vespers at venues such as Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center, but as an Orlando native, she has also enjoyed singing with ensembles at Walt Disney World. She has been a section leader and soloist for churches in New Jersey and locally in the Thousand Oaks area. When not singing, she writes and edits textbooks in the elementary grades, primarily for English language learners.
