Jesus Cervantes



Hi all! I'm a San Diego based violinist who loves performing in a variety of different performance settings, and am excited to continue playing groupmuse concerts, as I truly feel they provide the perfect setting to enjoy intimate chamber music alongside friends both old and new! I recently completed my B.M. in Violin Performance at the SDSU School of Music and Dance, where I studied with Dr. Pei-Chun Tsai, and served as concertmaster of the SDSU Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of maestro Michael Gerdes. In recent years, I have performed and recorded with the National Orchestral Institute (Nominated for "Best Orchestral Performance" at the 2019 GRAMMYS), and have attended festivals such as Domaine Forget International Academy and Indiana University String Academy. I currently play with organizations such as Opera NEO, Pacific Lyric Opera, and San Diego CityBallet, and teach privately at the San Diego Music and Art Company.
