He earned a Bachelor’s degree from The Hartt School at the University of Hartford in 2013 and joined the BSO while still a graduate student at Manhattan School of Music. While pursuing his degree, Jackson was selected as a bassoonist for the National Repertory Orchestra, New York String Orchestra Seminar, Norfolk Chamber Music Festival and National Orchestral Institute.
Jackson has performed as guest principal bassoon with the Seattle Symphony and several times in the same capacity with the BSO. Jackson has also performed with the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra, Bach in Baltimore, Baltimore Choral Arts Society, Hartford Opera Theater and the Hartford Independent Chamber Orchestra. Jackson is an avid chamber musician and loves to perform new or lesser-known chamber music with his BSO colleagues.
Jackson frequently works with young musicians through the BSO’s OrchLab, Music Box and OrchKids programs, and has taught masterclasses for The Hartt School and BSYO. Jackson’s primary teachers include Marc Goldberg, Roger Nye, Rebecca Noreen, Judith Buttery, James Lotz and Hunter Thomas.
