During the summer Jared is Principal Timpanist at Crested Butte Music Festival.
An active chamber musician, Jared is the percussionist for Deviant Septet and has performed with Argento, Alarm Will Sound, ICE, Wet Ink, Wordless Music and Perspectives Ensemble.

Five summers attending Lucerne Festival Academy led to the creation of a massive percussion group, Ensemble XII, and multiple projects with renowned Swiss percussionist Fritz Hauser. With Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Jared took part in world premieres from Steven Stucky (Chamber Concerto) and Charles Wuorinen (Megalith for piano and 15 Players).
In addition to orchestral/chamber music, Jared also enjoys playing shows, with sub duties at An American in Paris, Bullets Over Broadway, Bridges of Madison County, Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark and Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
