Madeline Yelle Jentsch


Originally from the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., Madeline Yelle Jentsch, soprano, found a new home in Cincinnati in 2012.  Madeline earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Vocal Performance at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music (CCM) in 2016, and is currently pursuing her Masters in Music in Vocal Performance.


An active performer, past roles include Susanna in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Maria Stuarda in Donizetti’s Maria Stuarda, Oberto in Handel’s Alcina, and L’écureuil in Ravel’s L’enfant et les sortileges. She has also been seen in Sant Angelo in Vado, Italy performing scenes as Lisette in Puccini’s La Rondine, and Despina in Mozart’s Cosí fan Tutte with Lingua e Canto. Recently praised by the Daily Astorian as the “Elfin Dynamo” and a “poised talent…[who] can write her own ticket in any genre of vocal music” has been making waves in the opera community. Future engagements include singing the roles of Miss Alden in William Bolcom’s Dinner at Eight at CCM, and Little Red Riding Hood in Cesar Cui’s Little Red Riding Hood with Cincinnati Opera’s outreach program, ROKCincy.


Madeline comes to the Indian Springs Academy with 12+ years of specialized vocal training in Musical Theatre and Classical repertoire, making her an invaluable resource for beginning singers.  Her teaching philosophy is simple: young voices need a healthy basis for singing, no matter the genre. She concentrates on efficient and beautiful singing through targeted exercises and carefully selected repertoire to make singing easy and fun for her students. Her hobbies include movies, exploring new cuisines, and watching competitive baking shows!
