JACLYN BREEZE

    Jaclyn Breeze (b. 1999) is an American composer and flutist crafting pieces and programs that foster community between artists and audiences. Her works have been commissioned and performed by groups in North America, Europe, and Asia. 

    Described as “inspiring, accessible, and distinctly her own” by one commissioner, Jaclyn’s works bridge modern composition and classical jazz harmony. Most recently, her works have been featured at SongFest (2023), Vision of Sound (2023), Brass USA (2022), and on Classic FM (2022, 2023). She earned her M.M. in Composition from Syracuse University. 

    An active performer, collaborator, and advocate for new music, Jaclyn has commissioned six new works so far in her career and has performed ten world premiers. She participates in both large and small ensembles, as well as solo playing. Most recently, she organized a concert series bringing listeners through the last 100 years of solo flute music that was performed around Western New York. She earned her B.S. in Flute Performance from Roberts Wesleyan University. 

    Jaclyn is also passionate about teaching, having worked as a theory TA at Syracuse while earning her Certificate of University Teaching, and teaching private lessons. She is currently the host of Jazz 90.1’s Kidz Zone (2023- ), which provides lessons and activities for families to do together to learn more about jazz artists. She also serves as the pianist at Holley Presbyterian Church. Her upcoming projects include commissions for soprano/piano duos, pierrot ensemble, and solo piano.
