Paulette Jumalon, soprano
PAULETTE SHEEN OCAMPO JUMALON, soprano, moved to California from the Philippines at the age of thirteen in the hopes of becoming a nurse. While taking her undergraduate pre-nursing classes at La Sierra, she immersed herself in vocal activities. Because of her distinct vocal ability and instinctual stage presence, vocal ensembles such as La Sierra University Chamber Singers, Chorale, UNITED, WITNESS, and HisVoice invited her as a featured soloist and an active member. She played the role of Rosalinda at La Sierra University’s full production of Strauss’ operetta, Die Fledermaus in 2013. She also participated in opera scenes such as Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Die Zauberflöte, and Verdi’s La Traviata. Last March 10, she debuted as a soprano soloist in John Rutter’s The Children’s Mass in collaboration with the Los Robles Master Chorale, La Sierra University Chamber Singers, LR Children’s choir and Dr. Lesley Leighton. Her passion for performing on stage led her to this milestone in her journey as a musician.
Ms. Jumalon’s most recent starring roles include Golde from Fiddler on the Roof in February 2014 and Maria from The Sound of Music in 2012 at La Sierra University, both of which were sold out and received raving reviews. She has also performed in student-produced musical productions as Jane Eyre from Jane Eyre and Elphaba from Wicked.
Ms. Jumalon was awarded first place in both the Riverside Opera Guild Vocal Competition and the Marguerite Marsh Vocal Scholarship Competition in 2013. Ms. Jumalon is currently pursuing her Bachelor of Music in vocal performance at La Sierra University, studying with Dr. Raejin Lee. She enjoys teaching young vocal students in her private studio and is an active teacher at the La Sierra Academy of Performing Arts.
