Emerson String QuartetHailed by The Washington Post as a pianist “with a refreshing mellowness and poetic touch” after her debut with the National Symphony Orchestra, Jessica Xylina Osborne is one of the most intensely expressive and passionate artists of her generation. An avid soloist, collaborator, chamber musician, and teacher, Ms. Osborne has collaborated with some of the world’s most distinguished performing musicians and has performed widely in the United States, Europe, and Far East, including performances in such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, and the Seoul Arts Center. Radio broadcasts include NPR’s Performance Today, WQXR in New York, and WGMS in Washington, D.C., among others.

This season, Ms. Osborne embarks on a recital project presenting works by women composers, both past and present. She holds degrees in solo piano performance from Indiana University and Rice University, and recently fulfilled the requirements for the Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance at Yale University. Her major teachers and mentors include Claude Frank, Emile Naoumoff, Jon Kimura Parker, Seymour Lipkin, Marjorie Lee, and her mother, Patricia Osborne.

This performance marks Jessica Xylina Osborne’s La Jolla Music Society debut
