Bio

Jonathan Hulting-Cohen

Saxophone

Classical saxophonist Jonathan Hulting-Cohen’s performances as soloist and chamber musician have been considered “impressive” with “exceptional facility” (Schenectady Daily Gazette), and “fun to watch” (Oregon Arts Watch). He made his concerto debut with the Philadelphia Classical Symphony in 2011. With the Adrian Symphony Orchestra (MI) and Sequoia Symphony Orchestra (CA), he performed John Williams’ Escapades. In 2017 he premiered Felipe Salles’ Sagrada Familia with Arno Bornkamp. He made the world premiere recording of Stacy Garrop’s Quicksilver with the UMass Amherst Wind Ensemble in 2018.

 

He is currently preparing Kenneth Fuchs’ Rush for performance in 2020. Since 2017, he has commissioned and performed recital repertoire connecting classical, jazz and folk aesthetics. His current recital season pairs these works with classical standards by Ibert, Harbison, and Bizet/Sarasate. He has performed at Chamber Music Northwest and in Carnegie Hall’s 21st Century Ensemble. He is co-founder of The Moanin’ Frogs saxophone sextet, and the saxophone and harp duo Admiral Launch, whose debut records appeared on Teal Creek and Albany. Jonathan trained at the University of Michigan under Donald Sinta and is currently Assistant Professor of Saxophone at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. He is a Conn-Selmer and D’Addario Woodwinds Artist, performing exclusively on their equipment and aiding in their design.
