Harpist Jennifer R. Ellis (M.M. Cleveland Institute of Music, B.M. Oberlin) is a dynamic contemporary performer who thoroughly enjoys defying traditional expectations about harp playing. It is in that spirit that she became the first harpist to be accepted to Bang on a Can’s Summer Festival and, in 2013, became the first harpist accepted to the Fresh Inc. Festival. In addition to performing her own harp compositions, Ms. Ellis has worked with composers to perform over forty premieres. A 2014 Atlantic Music Festival Future Music Lab Fellow, she was a founding member of the Admiral Launch Duo, OINC, and WoDom and was selected to accompany Stevie Wonder at the opening of Oberlin’s new jazz building.
Ms. Ellis studied harp with Yolanda Kondonassis, Jessica Siegel, and Alice Giles and earned her DMA in Harp Performance with a Certificate of Musicology and Graduate Teacher Certificate with Joan Holland at the University of Michigan.

Jonathan Hulting-Cohen, saxophonist, has performed worldwide, including at the Kennedy Center, Carnegie’s Zankel Hall, Colburn’s Thayer Hall, and in ten performances at SaxOpen across Strasbourg, France, in 2015 as a soloist and with his vaudeville saxophone sextet, The Moanin’ Frogs. He also played concertos alongside principal players of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and performed under John Adams and David Robertson.
Jonathan is Assistant Professor of Saxophone at University of Massachusetts Amherst.
