Jessica Meyer (b. 1974) is a versatile composer and violist whose passionate musicianship radiates accessibility and emotional clarity. Meyer’s compositions viscerally explore the wide palette of emotionally expressive colors and rhythms that have inspired her over the years as a violist performing everything from rock to Bach. Her first composer-performer portrait album debuted at number one on the Billboard traditional classical chart, and her works have been commissioned and performed by many established ensembles, including A Far Cry, the American Brass Quintet, Roomful of Teeth, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet. A passionate educator, Meyer is committed to awakening the creative capacities in students of all ages and has conducted hundreds of workshops for Carnegie Hall, The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Caramoor, the Little Orchestra Society, and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s.
