About Jill 

jill splatter 1.png

I absolutely love putting a smile on the face of others through my performances. Sharing my passion for music with people is a special feeling that I believe is unlike anything other. I enjoy playing different genres of music, including modern pop to classic rock of the 70s and 80s.

 

I am currently a sophomore at Temple University studying Music Therapy, combining my love of music with my passion for helping those less fortunate and in need. I am also involved in Temple's Pitch, Please A cappella group, which performs on and off campus and competes in the Mid-Atlantic International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella. I am also a member of Temple's Concert Choir, which has been regionally and nationally recognized.

 

In addition to entertaining at local venues, I have been involved in musical theatre for several years, participating in my school shows and local community theatre productions. Some of my favorite roles have been The Witch in Into the Woods, Miss Honey in Matilda, Catherine in Pippin, Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz, and Wendy in Peter Pan. 

 

I was an enthusiastic member of the music department at my high school as well and I feel extremely grateful to have been awarded a vocal scholarship. I enjoyed participating in the many ensembles that my school offered, including Glee Club, Chorale, Girls with Guitars Club, Liturgical Music, and Jazz Band. I was also ranked in the top 5 of sopranos in PMEA District 11 Chorus my sophomore year. Additionally, I was honored to be president of my high school’s A cappella group and co-president of the music honor society.

Music has been the biggest part of my life for as long as I can remember. I spent my childhood years writing music with my big brother and singing in front of my family and friends any chance I could get. Every family party turned into an opportunity for me, my brother, and my cousins to put on a concert for everyone. At the age of 5, I began my musical journey, taking music classes and piano lessons. Later, I began classical training for both guitar and voice, starting at ages 9 and 11, respectively.

I also took part in Broadway Wishes, a student-run show that involves performers from surrounding schools to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. With the Broadway Wishes cast, we were able to grant a critically ill child a wish through our performances and fundraisers,

 

Furthermore, I serve as a cantor at church, singing at weekly services, funerals, and weddings. I also feel very humbled to have been a part of the Gaudeamus Music Ministry’s annual Christmas concerts for the past 3 years, performing among many professional musicians. This non-profit ensemble raises money for organizations supporting the needy with a primary focus on education and children’s medical needs.

 

Keep up with my upcoming performances as I continue to pursue my love of music and touching the hearts of others!
