Jessie (he/they) joined Portland Columbia Symphony in 2021, most recently serving audiences as a member of the Patron Services team at Portland Opera. He graduated from Portland State University in 2016 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Musicology/Ethnomusicology and went on to earn a Master of Arts & Culture degree in Musicology from the University of Amsterdam in 2018. Jessie’s scholarship has focused on music and women’s, gender, and sexuality studies, with an emphasis on the performance of gender in various theatrical genres. Before discovering a passion for music history and feminist musicology, he studied classical flute performance at the University of Vermont (where he is originally from), and PSU. When Jessie isn’t swimming in a river, singing, or playing flute, he can be found spending time with his husband and their two small dogs.
