Dana Jackson has served as 3rd Bassoon and Contrabassoon with the Seattle Symphony and Seattle Opera, and is a current member of the Pacific Northwest Ballet Orchestra and Santa Barbara Symphony. She maintains an active freelance career up and down the West Coast, which includes recording studio work and chamber music performances.
When performing in a chamber music concert with Yoyo Ma in Chicago’s Symphony Center, the Chicago Tribune noted that Martinu’s Tango “had its most seductive effect when led by Dana Jackson’s bassoon.”
Ms. Jackson holds degrees from the Colburn School, Northwestern University, and University of Southern California. She is founder and director of the Archipelago Collective, a summer chamber music festival on San Juan Island that provides classical music to the island community and outreach concerts to local school-aged children.
