“Yeah, but is she any good?”

That was what our Head of Zendo, John Pulleyn, asked Sangha member Jonathan Hager about his daughter’s cello playing when Jonathan suggested she might perform at our annual Sangha Entertainment Night three or four years ago. Needless to say, “Jackie is.”

Recent winner of the 2018 Jo Amish Young Artist Competition, Jackie will be playing two upcoming concerts:

  • Tuesday, May 1, Hochstein Performance Hall, at 7:30 pm: Rachmaninov Cello Sonata. This is the David Hochstein Competition Winner’s recital. And it’s free. Additional information is available here.
