Jazimina (she/her) is a mezzo-soprano, creative producer, naturalist, educator, and wild blueberry picker rooted in the beautiful and artistically fertile Monadnock Region of New Hampshire.
She has conceived, directed, and performed in a number of interdisciplinary works which explore the intersection of music, storytelling, and the natural world. Two of these projects are site-specific musical hikes through the Harris Center’s Hiroshi Loop Trail in Peterborough: The Singing Stream sets Schubert’s Die Schöne Müllerin alongside a real-life mill stream (Nubanusit), and In Fine Feather invites walkers into a world of music and poetry inspired by birdsong, accompanied by the sights and sounds of the birds themselves.
Jazimina is currently developing a site-specific performance using live music and storytelling to make audible Dr. Suzanne Simard’s groundbreaking research on how forests function as complex, caring communities.
As a teacher-naturalist with the Harris Center, Jazimina has reveled in her wild adventures with the Yeti Club at South Meadow School and Great Brook School, conducting worm races at the Learning Vine in Antrim, counting salamanders with Babies in Backpacks in Keene, cheering for brave youngsters doing otter slides down Mount Skatutakee during winter camp, and mushroom hunting with the Voyagers of summer. She loves every minute of engaging young and old alike in the wonders of our natural world, and feels so lucky to be part of the brilliant, curious, and caring team at the Harris Center.
