Jared F. Burrell

Jared Burrell, Trumpet

At a young age, Jared was accomplished in his love of music. He began his education at the University of Amherst, studying Jazz and African American Music Studies; and in 2008 earned his Master of Music, Jazz Composition, degree from the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston, MA.

Having travelled abroad to perform, and now visiting more locally, the wonder of sound and the reciprocal effect on life, always keeps a sparkle in his eyes. Jared shares that he is evolving a new style of sound using deep, flowing textures.

“My music is a blend of various cultural retentions. My goal in composition is to choreograph sonic choices that reflect values whose origins are mysterious and inexplicable. I always imagine what segment of society a person who lives in my sound world would belong to, and am always left with the impression that the world itself is the person, perpetually looking inward, seeking its source. I want my music to reflect this inward gaze with the same intensity.”
