Jennifer Streeter has led occasional TRS playing sessions in the past few years and taught in our spring workshops, all to great acclaim, and has now officially taken over the music directorship from Pat Petersen.
Jennifer has performed throughout the United States and Europe with ensembles such as the North Carolina, Indianapolis and Seattle Baroque Orchestras, Three Notch'd Road, Music of the Baroque, and the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra. She has been featured at the Bloomington, Magnolia and Amherst Early Music festivals.
