POCATELLO — A singer with roots in Pocatello and who has achieved the music industry’s highest honor will be stopping by the Marshall Public Library next month.

Grammy Award winner Jessica E. Jones will join Idaho State-Civic Symphony Artistic Director and Conductor Dr. Julie Sorensen for a question and answer session on the “X, Y, and Z” of opera Wednesday, Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. on the first floor of the library. Jones took home a Grammy for “Best Opera Recording” for her work on “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” by composer Mason Bates in 2018.

Jones will be performing with the Idaho State Civic-Symphony Friday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at the Stephens Performing Arts Center. Details on the Idaho State-Civic Symphony and the performance can be found here.
