JACQUELINE SUZUKI, violin, is a longtime member of the Long Beach and Santa Barbara Symphonies. A native of San Francisco, she began her earliest chamber music studies on scholarship at the San Francisco Conservatory. She has performance degrees from the Mannes College of Music (BM), where she studied with William Kroll, and the California Institute of the Arts (MFA).
As a Los Angeles freelancer, she has performed with many ensembles and in many genres, from rock, jazz, Latin and Arabic, to playing in the pit for the Bolshoi Ballet and onstage with the Three Tenors. She has recorded with diverse artists: Snoop Dogg, Neil Sedaka, Leonard Cohen, Whitney Houston, Bocelli, Lalo Schifrin, McCoy Tyner, Placido Domingo and many others, and appears on recordings by the Long Beach, Santa Barbara and Pacific Symphonies. She has spent summers at the Peter Britt, Oregon Coast, Carmel Bach and Cabrillo Festivals and has performed in a string quartet “in residence” on a raft trip down the Green River in Utah. Tours have taken her many times to Japan, Taiwan, Mexico, Canada, Europe, the Middle East and throughout the US. She initiated and curates the Free Admission Glendale Noon Concerts http://glendalenoonconcerts.blogspot.com and also the Edendale Up Close Concerts: http://edendaleupclose.blogspot.com

Originally from Tennessee, Brendan White enjoys the diverse life of a pianist in Los Angeles, where he combines his love of the traditional classical piano repertoire with an avid interest in genre-bending modern and experimental music. White studied with Alice Jackson in Tennessee before attending the Eastman School of Music to study with Thomas Schumacher and then University of Southern California with Kevin Fitz-Gerald, where he was awarded Outstanding Master’s Graduate of the Thornton School of Music. He has performed as soloist with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Eastman’s Musica Nova, and the Delta Symphony Orchestra. As a devoted performer of new music, he has worked with notable composers and conductors including Thomas Adès, Donald Crockett, Alan Pierson, Steven Stucky and Jeffrey Milarsky. White is a member of the Mühlfeld Clarinet Trio, winners of the Beverly Hills Auditions, which performs traditional chamber music alongside brand new works for clarinet, cello and piano. He collaborates regularly with the immersive theater group the Speakeasy Society, whose shows often feature largely improvised music that evolves with the narrative. In addition to playing piano, White can occasionally be spotted as a secret organist, percussionist, or tenor.
