Small image


Dr Janet Jennings is a well-known New Zealand composer. Trained and experienced as a singer, conductor, organist (church musician), harpsichordist, and stage director, Janet composes sympathetically and engagingly for voice (solo and choral music), instruments (chamber and orchestral music), and for stage (opera and music-drama).

Janet majored in organ and harpsichord studies at Auckland University, later completing post-graduate research focused on a performance of Tate/Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas. Her PhD studies in composition were assisted by a doctoral scholarship from the University of Waikato and a Fulbright scholarship allowing for travel and study in the United States.
