Jacques Lee Wood

Jacques Lee Wood


Noted for his fluency of playing, and expressive warmth, sensitivity, and technical ease (Boston Musical Intelligencer, Melrose Free Press), cellist Jacques Lee Wood enjoys an active and varied musical career. His passion for teaching and research complements a performance career that explores a broad range of interests: from historically informed performance on baroque cello, commissioning and performing new works on modern and baroque cello, to playing bluegrass banjo, mandolin, and cello with his NYC-based group Cathedral Parkway. Deeply committed to seeking out new areas in music to explore, Wood is a founding member of the Boston-based Antico Moderno, a period chamber ensemble that commissions new works for period instruments and StringLab, a duo with guitarist Simon Powis that produces original arrangements/compositions and commissions new works for the ensemble. Wood is currently the Artistic Director of Music at Eden’s Edge, a nonprofit chamber music organization based on Boston’s North Shore, and is a member of the Grammy-nominated Trinity Baroque Orchestra, Bachsolisten Seoul, the American Baroque Orchestra, the Pedroia String Quartet, and is a frequent guest artist with A Far Cry, Yale Schola Cantorum, Bach Collegium Japan, Firebird Ensemble, and Handel and Haydn Society. Since 2014, Wood has been a visiting artist at the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival, and is a frequent guest artist at the Great Mountains Festival (South Korea), Korea Strings Research Institute, Bari International Music Festival, International Musical Arts Institute, and the Manchester Summer Chamber Music Festival. Dr. Wood holds a BM from the New England Conservatory of Music and a MM and DMA from Yale University.
