An improviser, composer, and multi-instrumentalist, Jennifer Curtis has been celebrated by the New York Times as “an artist of keen intelligence and taste, well worth watching out for.” She has performed solo at Carnegie Hall and with the Simon Bolivar Orchestra in Venezuela, appeared at El Festival de las Artes Esénias in Peru, collaborated with musical shamen of the Andes, and taught Kurdish refugees in Turkey. She is currently artist in residence at Haw River Ballroom’s Culture Mill in Saxapahaw and will teach a course on the art of interpretation at Duke this spring. She plays on a 1777 Vincenzo Panormo
