Jessica performs and teaches in the Louisville and Owensboro areas of Kentucky. Jessica consistently performs with The Chamber Winds of Louisville (who have recently been asked to perform at the Midwest clinic December 2013), Louisville Winds and occasionally subs in the Owensboro Symphony Orchestra.
The Louisville Winds was founded in March 2011, with the inaugural concert March 27, 2011. Louisville Winds is an adult community band with members from the Louisville metropolitan community and surrounding area.The band was born of a desire by many musicians seeking an opportunity to continue playing their instruments in a concert band setting. Louisville Winds is committed to performing a wide variety of significant literature for concert band.The ensemble is comprised of musicians from varying careers and backgrounds. A large number of players are educators with the Jefferson County Public Schools. Others have music related careers, some are music students or retired educators, and many are musicians with non-music related careers.
Now in their seventeenth season, the musicians of Chamber Winds Louisville continue to enjoy sharing their enthusiasm for the performance of wind repertoire in all of its dimensions. Concerts often include chamber music, solos, and typically a few "full cast" works to close the concert. Educators (both in music and other fields), professional musicians, and high level performers whose business careers are in non-music fields, make up the membership. They are drawn together because of their appreciation for the fellowship of ensemble performance, and the joy of sharing it with appreciative audiences.
