Jennifer Cooper, Flute

Born in the U.K. and raised in Canada, Jennifer Cooper’s passion for the arts was ignited at a young age through music. She studied flute at the Royal Northern College before coming to the U.S. to complete a doctorate at the Cincinnati College Conservatory. She has held college teaching positions at Morehead State University, KY, University of Montana, and has taught abroad in Austria, Brazil, Canada, and the U.K. She has performed with orchestras and toured and recorded with chamber groups worldwide. Through music, Jennifer has developed a love for arts, culture, and community, and a strong desire to foster artistic expression and support emerging artists. While teaching flute at the University of Montana, Jennifer completed her MBA degree while simultaneously serving as Executive Director for the Montana International Choral Festival. She was recently appointed Executive Director of IndyFringe, Indianapolis’ most vibrant and diverse arts festival. Her commitment to the arts extends beyond music, and with IndyFringe, Jennifer plays a pivotal role in supporting and promoting the work of talented emerging artists and pushing the boundaries of creativity through all art forms. She is thrilled to be in Indianapolis alongside her husband, two daughters, and corgis, Clifton and Ludlow.
