The Peabody Jazz Ensemble


Handpicked by Gary Thomas, Director of Jazz Studies at Peabody and Richard and Elizabeth Case Endowed Professor in Jazz, the Ensemble embodied the drive, talent and promise nurtured by the Baltimore-based Peabody Institute. Peabody, which has been turning out top quality musicians for over 150 years, has a rigorous, performance-oriented educational environment that demands the highest artistic standards.

The Ensemble consisted of Amanda Bloom (vocal), Jonathan Baez (percussion), Kevin Clark (guitar), Jacob Silver (piano), and Blake Meister (bass).
