“Jennings has got what it takes: a distinctive voice, charisma, and a pyrotechnic style that works magic on the ears.”
Active as a concerto soloist, Ms. Jennings has appeared with over fifty orchestras including the Utah and Houston Symphonies. In 2009 she premiered concertos written for her by Carter Pann and Laura Elise Schwendinger. The Washington Post described her performance of the Jonathan Leshnoff Concerto with the Fairfax Symphony as a “spirited, quicksilver performance.”
Chamber music partners have included So Percussion, the Brentano and Takács Quartets, soprano Lucy Shelton, pianists Lura Johnson and Simone Dinnerstein, guitarist Jonathan Leathwood, harpists Bridget Kibbey and June Han, and cellist Colin Carr. She performs frequently with her husband, violist Matthew Dane in a variety of chamber settings.
As broad-gauged in her musical pursuits as she is in her repertoire choices, Ms. Jennings played ten years as the Principal Flute with the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra (Houston) where the Houston Culture Map described her as a “flutist (who) glistened with golden pixie dust”. She currently performs as Principal Flute with the Arizona MusicFest! Orchestra and has performed frequently with Orchestra 2001 including recent performances at the Library of Congress and in Havana, Cuba.
