Jared had the benefit of being exposed to classical and art-music from an early age. He was a trombonist throughout his youth, and in his early twenties trained in piano. Growing up, his parents routinely tuned in to classical music broadcast from public radio. Jared’s background in classical music has added to his depth of appreciation and understanding of the performing arts and artists. Since first discovering the Bach Aria Soloists in the spring of 2010, he has attended the majority of performances, including the Hauskonzerts. He greatly admires the extraordinary, world-class musicianship of the Bach Aria Soloists and their commitment to preserve and exquisitely perform and share Bach’s music, genius and brilliant legacy with diverse audiences throughout the Kansas City Metropolitan Area.
