Jessica Lindsey

Jessica Lindsey has established herself as a dynamic performer and pedagogue, pursuing a career that is equally devoted to both spheres. Dr. Lindsey is committed to pushing the boundaries of the clarinet by commissioning new repertoire, championing music by diverse composers, and showcasing works through recordings, performances, and conferences. Her first CD release with pianist Dr. Christian Bohnenstengel, Set No Limits: The Music of Women Composers, is published by Albany Records (February 2018). Fanfare Magazine described Dr. Lindsey as “a master of her instrument, exhibiting wonderful dynamic shading and breath control.” Dr. Lindsey actively performs with Spatial Forces Duo, a bass/clarinet duo she co-founded with Dr. Christy Banks, which has received critical acclaim for its energetic performances of electroacoustic music. As an orchestral player, she has performed with the Lincoln and Omaha Symphonies, Fairbanks Symphony Orchestra, and Opera Fairbanks. She currently performs with the Nebraska Chamber Orchestra as bass clarinetist and as substitute clarinet with the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra.

A dedicated educator, Dr. Lindsey is currently the Associate Professor of Clarinet at UNC Charlotte, where she prides herself on creating new musical opportunities for her growing clarinet studio. Dr. Lindsey is a Licensed Body Mapping Educator and finished her certification under the instruction of ABME Sponsoring Teacher Dr. Amy Likar in 2021. She has also studied Body Mapping with Dr. Bonnie Draina and was introduced to these concepts through Alexander Technique coursework taught by James Brody at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

Dr. Lindsey holds a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a Master of Music from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln; she studied clarinet with Daniel Silver and Dr. Diane Barger, respectively.
