Performing Arts: Music
Jeri Jorgensen is a Colorado Springs violinist well-known to the cultural scene. She teaches at Colorado College, is the director of the chamber music program for the Colorado Springs Youth Symphony Association, and is the founder of the Manitou Chamber Music Festival, which just completed its seventh season - online this year! She is devoted to the musical education of young people, and has many accomplished private students.
Before the pandemic, she toured nationally, and her recording of the complete Beethoven sonatas for violin and piano was just released on the Albany label. She likes to garden, cook, and fly-fish, but having done that for the last four months, misses playing music for people. She is using the pandemic pause to study unaccompanied violin pieces, and would love to come to your porch and play a Bach sonata or partita for you!
Curbside Culture is a program that brings the performing arts out into the community by facilitating small-scale live performances, in appropriately social-distanced circumstances, outside of private residences, places of business, and other gathering spots. Download the program flyer.
