About

Cellist James Jaffe connects with audiences, colleagues, and composers through music. He has performed solos with the National Repertory Orchestra, CityMusic Cleveland, and the Stockton Symphony. Recent chamber music appearances have taken him through Switzerland and France on concert tours, to the Robert Mann String Quartet Seminar in Manhattan, to Beijing’s Central Conservatory of Music, to the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival, and frequently to Groupmuses in San Francisco, including a sold-out performance of Schubert’s Death and the Maiden at San Francisco’s first Massivemuse. He serves as Director of Festival Rolland, a summer chamber music festival in Burgundy, France.
