Carol Jantsch to perform at UNT March 23

The College of Music will welcome guest artist Carol Jantsch, principal tuba player for the Philadelphia Orchestra and the first woman tubist in a major symphony orchestra.

Jantsch will give a free concert and master class and will participate in a panel discussion during her March 23 visit. All events will be at Voertman Hall in the Music Building.

Raised in a musical family, Jantsch started piano lessons at age 6 and later began playing the tuba. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Michigan, and won the position of principal tuba in the prestigious Philadelphia Orchestra in 2006 while still a senior in college. Jantsch became the first woman tuba player to play in one of the world’s major orchestras.

Don Little“Carol Jantsch is a phenomenal musician,” said Don Little, right, UNT Regents professor of music and a longtime professional tubist. “She is one of the most dynamic young tuba players in the orchestral scene right now in the world. This is an incredible opportunity for our UNT students, faculty and staff.”

Jantsch will instruct a master class for pre-selected UNT students and two exceptionally talented area high school students. A panel discussion will give students and faculty an opportunity to ask Jantsch questions and discuss her work.

Steven HarlosThe visit will be capped with a concert featuring numerous pieces, including Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet Suite No. 1 and Claude Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun. Pianist Steven Harlos, left, UNT professor of music and staff keyboardist for the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, will accompany Jantsch.

Jantsch has appeared as a soloist with the Columbus Symphony, the St. Petersburg Symphony in Russia, the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra and the United States Marine Band, among others. She has given master classes across Europe, Asia and throughout North America, and is on the faculty of the Curtis Institute of Music, Temple University’s Boyer College of Music and the Yale University School of Music.
