Jenifer Rose Weber was born and raised in Washington, Pennsylvania. From a young age, she was active in performance activities, winning her first solo at the age of five. She performed in various theatrical capacities throughout her early school years but began to consider music as a career in high school. Jenifer was the first student in Trinity High School history to win a solo in every concert of her high school career. She also participated in the Pittsburgh' Civic Light Opera high school summer program, performing in Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods.
Jenifer completed a Bachelor of Music in Performance (Voice) at Indiana University in Bloomington, IN. While there, she studied voice with Teresa Kubiak, Klara Barlow, and Gary Lakes. She sang the solo in the Brahms Marienlieder and was in the chorus for the world premiere of Dreamwalkers. While at Indiana University, Jenifer traveled to Salzburg, Austria to participate in the Austrian American Mozart Academy. There she sang Cherubino in Die Hochzeit des Figaro and toured the Austrian countryside presenting sacred works by Mozart.
After receiving her degree from Indiana University, Jenifer returned to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. She presented several solo recitals but gained the most enjoyment from working with the Pittsburgh Opera's Outreach Program. She was a Trunk Artist for the 2004/2005 school year. She was also chosen to present the improv program during Pittsburgh's family-friendly New Year's Eve celebration First Night. In the summer following, Jenifer traveled to Graz, Austria to sing at the American Institute of Musical Studies (AIMS). While there, she sang in the first Orchestra Concert of the season, presenting several of Aaron Copland's Old American Songs. She also competed in the Meistersinger competition, performed in several public recitals, and sang in a master class led by Patricia Craig.
Jenifer returned to the academic community to begin and ultimately complete a Masters of Music degree in Performance (Voice) at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. She studied with Dale Morehouse and coached with Richard Willaims while there. Jenifer was cast as Amanda McKenny in Working during her first year and as Marie in Most Happy Fella in her second year. Her first opera role at UMKC was Mrs. Ott in Susannah. Later that year, she sang Tolomeo in Giulio Cesare in Egitto. The following year, Jenifer sang La Zelatrice in Suor Angelica and later that semester Dido in Dido and Aeneas, the Emperor's Wife in The Emperor's Madness, and Guadalupe in the world premiere of Tonatzin. Jenifer returned to UMKC after the completion of her degree to sing Mum in Albert Herring and Dorabella in Cosi fan Tutte.
