This fall Jessica has been busy teaching at Illinois Wesleyan, Purdue University, and working as a teaching assistant for the third year at the University of Illinois. Final touches are being made on Transit Brass' debut CD: Soundscapes, and it is expected to release late this fall.
On November 2nd, 2017 Jessica gave her second DMA Recital at the University of Illinois, accompanied by Kevina Lam. You can listen to some of the recital highlights in the video below.
Now that her two DMA recitals are complete, Jessica will begin research on her dissertation project: Jazz Influence on Unaccompanied Horn Literature: A Guide to Performing Solo Works by Douglas Hill, David Amram, and Dana Wilson.
