Before she turned 3, Jacqueline knew she wanted to play the violin after seeing Itzhak Perlman on Sesame Street. That was the beginning of a musical journey that has carried her to Germany, Israel, Italy, Spain and New Zealand.
Nearing the end of her graduate work, Jacqueline is excited about building a life around performing, teaching, and recording. She enjoys chamber music and currently plays in a piano trio with her identical twin, Katherine, a cellist.
Growing up in Idaho, Jacqueline loves to spend time outdoors. She studies yoga, bakes bread, is currently learning Russian as her third language, and enjoys reading a variety of genres.
Jacqueline is also working hard to launch a non-profit organization, named Classical C.A.R.M.A. (Concerts Aiming to Raise Money and Awareness), whose purpose is to share the gift of classical music with others, while creating a tangible, lasting impact on our world. Classical C.A.R.M.A.’s vision is to create innovative benefit concerts which fundraise, entertain, and build hope, while bringing awareness to obstacles faced by underserved populations.
