    Currently a freelance musician in Chicagoland, Jennifer Crosby is a
    new vibrant face on Chicago’s conducting scene.  Creating
    opportunities for music making and enriching musical artistic
    experiences for persons in her community is a great passion for
    Jennifer.  Originally from Montana, Jennifer studied both instrumental
    performance and conducting at a young age, including studying at the
    Kennedy Center in their summer student program.  After that she
    continued her education at the University of Northern Colorado, where
she graduated with a Bachelor of Music Degree.  Then in 2002 she moved to Chicagoland and studied
music with members of the Chicago Symphony, and then continued her education at Northwestern
University and graduated with a Master of Music Degree is 2006.  Jennifer is
the Music Director for Chicagoland's
Tenuto Orchestra.  She has enjoyed
conducting many ensembles including groups at DePaul University, University
Of Great Falls, and Chicago’s Silhouette Players Musical Theater Productions.  
She has studied with many national conductors including, Dr. Robert Hasty,
Associate Director of Orchestras, Northwestern University, Dr. Richard
Mayne, Associate Director of Bands, University of Northern Colorado, &
Elizabeth Schulze, National Symphony Orchestra, Associate Conductor.  
Jennifer lives in Evanston with her husband John and their Landseer
Newfoundland, Sparkie.  When she is not enjoying teaching or performing
music, you can sometimes catch her at the beach enjoying failed attempts
at lake surfing, and Sparkie's failed attempts at rescuing her.
