Patrice Jackson

We’re excited to welcome the great Patrice Jackson as a special guest for this year’s MWROC! Patrice will be joining us mid-week!

Patrice Jackson is carving a name for herself as a gifted and charismatic soloist. The Detroit News has described her as a “big-toned, boldly projected soloist” and the Hartford Courant complimented her “effortless facility, playful phrasing, and a sense of spontaneity that one hears usually only from the highest caliber of musicians.”

Since winning the Sphinx Competition in 2002, Jackson has performed with multiple symphonies, including those of Atlanta, Detroit, Dallas, New Jersey, and Milwaukee, as well as with the Philadelphia Orchestra. She made her international orchestral and recital debuts in South Africa in 2002. Highlights of her 2018–2019 season include performances with the Boston Conservatory Chamber Orchestra, the Boston Conservatory Recital series, an orchestral performance at New England’s Jordan Hall, and debuting with the musical Jagged Little Pill at Boston’s A.R.T.

Jackson has been a student of Janos Starker, Aldo Parisot, Joel Krosnick, and Bonnie Hampton. She is a graduate of the Juilliard School in New York and the Yale School of Music in New Haven, and is currently associate professor of cello at Berklee College of Music and Boston Conservatory at Berklee.
