is a classical-crossover violinist who specializes in classical-crossover, Gypsy jazz, and Christian Arts. A fellow at both Tanglewood and the Aspen Music Festival, he's also played with the Naples Philharmonic for the past 10 years. Composition and improvisation are constant tools in his musical belt as he seeks to expand how the traditional violin is commonly used. Such expansions include collaborations with visual and dance artists. He also applies these ideas to Christian worship in a variety of contexts. To expand such efforts Jeff has recently founded a ministry called Abiding Arts Night.
