Jaren founded Lyrica Baroque in 2009 with the hopes of inspiring connection, collaboration and creativity in her community. What began as a concert of Bach cantatas in the French Quarter in New Orleans, has grown into a multifaceted organization serving thousands of youth and community members each year - all through the genre of chamber music.
Shared artistic experiences like those offered in chamber music enable strong connections, transcending to the community environment. Lyrica Baroque unites communities by teaching and performing accessible chamber music to children and audiences from a range of artistic, geographic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Since 2014, NOLA Chamber Fest has been inspiring and motivating musicians through the experience of tight knit collaboration and artistic independence that only chamber music can offer. Created and founded by Jaren and presented annually by Lyrica Baroque, NOLA Chamber Fest is a five-day festival in New Orleans, LA. The festival includes performances by world renowned chamber ensembles, a national online chamber music competition, masterclasses and Creativity Day for local musicians.
