Jaie Arianna Livingstone grew up in Connecticut participating in Creative Experiences, an all ages program devoted to youth development. Her love of music and appetite for performing drew her to Ithaca College, where she received her Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance in 1994. After college, she formed “The Royale Madrigals”, a period quartet that performed at Renaissance Festivals from New England to Arizona. For three holiday seasons, she performed at Boston’s Symphony Hall with the Tanglewood Festival Chorus, appearing on stage with musical greats including James Taylor, John Williams, and Keith Lockhart. A desire for a quieter life brought Jaie to the Olympic Peninsula, where she joined the cast of Olympic Theatre Art’s 2004 production of “Side By Side By Sondheim.” She became a soloist with the Peninsula Singers, sensitively performing Mendelssohn’s “Hear My Prayer” (while 6 months pregnant!) and select solos from Handel’s “Messiah”. She served as Musical Director for four years at the Olympic Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Port Angeles, where she established the choir and music department.
2012 was a busy year for Jaie, as she opened her vocal studio and connected with Olympic Theatre Arts, performing in two benefit concerts for the theater. She conceived the idea for “Holidays on Stage And Screen,” a musical review of seasonal favorites from movies, musicals, and TV Specials, and brought it to fruition featuring three more of the areas best singers. Currently serving as Musical Director for “Little Shop of Horrors”, which opens February 8, Jaie is looking forward to a long and happy relationship with the theater.
Jaie is now the Choir Director for Trinity United Methodist Church in Sequim. She began leading the singing for worship for the 2012 advent season. The choir, Trinity Singers, is open to all who would like to join their voices in worship.
In addition to being a trained performer, vocal coach and voice teacher, she is an Usui and Angelic Reiki Master, and a Certified Access® BARS Practitioner.
