Jenny Sears

Jenny grew up in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota, where her love of music was given to her by, and nurtured by, her parents. She was introduced to a wide variety of music and given the opportunity to begin studying piano at the age of four and from there, her desire to learn new instruments kept growing. She graduated from the University of Northern Colorado with a degree in Musical Theatre with an emphasis on music, moved to New York City and immediately found success in the theatre. Starring in such Broadway shows as Mamma Mia, Pal Joey and Wicked, she found happiness onstage whilst continuing to hone her skills as an instrumentalist. She has played in numerous musical groups, orchestras, pit orchestras/bands and has also enjoyed using her talents as a piano accompanist in many different facets. Over the years, Jenny has mainly focused on the piano, violin, oboe and guitar, though to this day she gets tremendous reward out of picking up something new, like the accordion, the autoharp, and even such worldly instruments as the balalaika. Jenny currently plays the violin with the Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra. In 2013, she got the most wonderful news of all...she was going to be a mother. Jenny now has two daughters, and she has witnessed what classical music, and being introduced to a variety of instruments, has done for her children.
