Brad Hogarth is a versatile and multi-faceted musician, whose career has taken him from the finest concert halls in Europe to the frozen Arctic tundra and the dusty Black Rock Desert. He is especially passionate about musical outreach - both as a performer and as an educator, Brad hopes to bring people and communities together through the power of live performance.
Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, Brad is the Associate Professor of Conducting at San Francisco State University, the Artistic Advisor to the Monterey Symphony, as well as the music director and conductor of the Art Haus Collective, known for presenting spectacular performances of classical works in unique spaces. Brad is also the music director of the Contra Costa Wind Symphony, and is on faculty at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he conducts the Conservatory Wind Ensemble and Pre-College Contemporary Music Ensemble. This season Brad makes his conducting debuts with the San Francisco Symphony, Monterey Symphony, Bay Brass, and San Francisco Contemporary Music Players.
An accomplished trumpeter as well, Brad performs regularly with a number of orchestras. He can be heard on the San Francisco Symphony’s recording of Ives’ Symphony No. 4 and the San Francisco Ballet’s recording of Lowell Liebermann’s Frankenstein. Brad toured with the Indianapolis Symphony to the Kennedy Center as a part of the 2018 SHIFT Festival, and has performed as guest principal trumpet with the Louisville Orchestra.
Brad earned a Bachelors in trumpet performance and music education from the Eastman School of Music and a Masters degree in trumpet performance at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he studied with the San Francisco Symphony’s Principal Trumpeter, Mark Inouye.
Described as a “superb singer and artistic presence,” Rhoslyn Jones has established herself as an important presence on the operatic and concert stages of the world.
Career highlights include multiple roles at San Francisco Opera including covering Tosca in their new production of Puccini’s masterpiece, and Strauss’ Elektra where Ms. Jones stood out as the “compassionate Fifth Maidservant, singing in a shimmering, ringing soprano.” As Musetta in La Bohème at both Arizona Opera and Pittsburgh Opera, “her true genius vocally came through in the final scene when she reunites the near-death Mimi with Rodolfo. Her voice was powerful and nuanced, particularly in the upper register, but it was the sheer humanity she brought to the scene that earned her the audience’s resounding applause.”
Other roles include Tatyana in Eugene Onegin at Vancouver Opera, Mimi in La Bohème at Pacific Opera Victoria, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni at Chicago Opera Theater, and the title role in Floyd’s Susannah at Arizona Opera. A busy concert singer, Ms. Jones has also appeared with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra, American Philharmonic, Anchorage Symphony, Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra, Colorado Symphony Orchestra, New York City Ballet Orchestra, Philadelphia Pops Orchestra, Sacramento Orchestra, Santa Rosa Symphony, Silicon Valley Symphony, and Vancouver Symphony.
Jones is a graduate of the Adler Fellowship Program and the co-founder of the Bay Area Vocal Program. She attended the Steans Institute at the Ravinia Festival, and was chosen to attend the Merola Opera Program at San Francisco Opera twice before being selected for a coveted spot in the Adler Fellowship. Along with her full studio at SFCM she has served on the voice faculty at Sonoma State University, The University of British Columbia, The Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, Chautauqua Institute, The Curtis Institute, and has most recently been added to the voice faculty for the San Francisco Opera Adler Fellows and Merola Program.
