Jordan Dodson
Classical Guitar

On November 15, outstanding young classical guitarist Jordan Dodson will perform works by Bach, Fujikura, Sor and Giulio Regondi.  An active soloist and chamber musician based in New York and Philadelphia, Jordan Dodson is also an Astral Artist.

Hailed as "one of the top young guitarists of his generation" (Performance Today), Jordan Dodson is an active soloist and chamber musician based in New York and Philadelphia.  In the Fall of 2011, Jordan was one of two guitarists selected to inaugurate a new program in classical guitar at Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music.

He has received prizes in numerous competitions, including the 2013 Astral Artists National Auditions, 2011 Lillian Fuchs Chamber Music Competition, 2010 Indiana International Guitar Competition, and 2008 American String Teachers Association Competition.  In 2013, he was a Young Artist in Residence on American Public Media's Performance Today. An advocate for contemporary music, Jordan has commissioned and premiered dozens of pieces internationally. He is a performer in several New York City ensembles including Ensemble Moto Perpetuo, Marcel, and Ensemble sans maître.

Originally from Columbus, Ohio, Jordan started playing music at a young age. His past teachers were Clare Callahan, David Starobin, and Jason Vieaux. He has received degrees from the Curtis Institute of Music,  Manhattan School of Music, and the University of Cincinnati.

Interviews may be scheduled through Jim McClelland at 215-925-2038 / Photos available on request. The series is made possible by a generous gift from the Jim McClelland Fund for the Performing Arts of the Philadelphia Foundation. The PAA would also like to thank WRTI, our media sponsor.
