JACQUELINE POLLAUF

American harpist Jacqueline Pollauf is a dynamic young performer with musical sensitivity and maturity beyond her years. Praised for playing with “glittering beauty” (Lawrence Budman, critic for the Miami Herald) and a “steady and most satisfying elegance” (The Toledo Blade), Jacqueline made her solo debut at age sixteen with the Perrysburg Symphony Orchestra. She has since made solo appearances with many orchestras including the Toledo Symphony Orchestra, the Mid-Atlantic Symphony Orchestra, and the Firelands Symphony Orchestra. In demand as a recitalist, her numerous performances include recitals given at the Academy Art Museum of Easton, Maryland; the Homewood Museum of Johns Hopkins University; and the University of Baltimore. Jacqueline’s debut solo album, Bouquet, will be released in 2009.

Jacqueline seeks to explore and expand not only the role of classical music in society, but also the perception and capabilities of the harp. As part of this mission, Jacqueline is a member of Pictures on Silence, a harp and saxophone duo with Dr Noah Getz. The ensemble explores the diverse musical possibilities of their instrumental combination through compelling programming and a dedication to excellence in performance. The 2009–2010 season will include a residency with the Baltimore Composer’s Forum, performances at the Mansion at Strathmore and the Community College of Baltimore County along with numerous premieres. They has an ever-expanding repertoire driven by the commissioning of new works, the exploration of repertoire written throughout the twentieth century, and the adaptation of existing music.

An active proponent of the music of our time, Jacqueline seeks to expand the role of classical music in today’s society. She has given premieres by many composers, including Kathleen Bader, Miguel Bolivar, Charles Halka, Bruce Mahin, and Christopher William Pierce. She has performed with the Scottish Voices ensemble, on the Evolution Contemporary Music Series, and on the Mobtown Modern Series. Jacqueline can also be heard on the recording, New Music from Bowling Green, Vol. IV.

Jacqueline’s multi-faceted career also includes the honor of being principal harpist with the Philadelphia Virtuosi Chamber Orchestra. She is featured on their critically acclaimed Naxos recording, Howard Hanson: Organ Concerto (Naxos 8.559251). Jacqueline has also performed with such ensembles as the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Baltimore Opera Company, the Baltimore Choral Arts Society, and Opera Vivente.
