Keyboardist and conductor Jeffrey Grossman specializes in vital, engaging performances of music of the past, through processes that are intensely collaborative and historically informed. Highlights of recent seasons include performing as harpsichord soloist in Bach’s Brandenburg Concerti with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Chamber Music Northwest; conducting from the harpsichord and organ critically-acclaimed performances of Bach’s St. John Passion with the Sebastians and TENET; and music directing from the harpsichord Handel’s Agrippina with Juilliard Opera. In addition to serving as artistic director of the acclaimed baroque ensemble The Sebastians, he also performs this season with Impromptu, The Green Mountain Project, Quodlibet, New York Baroque Incorporated, and the Bach Players of Holy Trinity. Since 2006, he has also toured parts of the rural United States with artists of The Piatigorsky Foundation, performing over 100 outreach concerts intended to bring live classical music to underserved communities. Jeffrey can be heard on the Avie, Gothic, Naxos, Albany, Soundspells, Métier, and MSR Classics record labels. Several new recordings of early music are currently in production.

A native of Detroit, Michigan, Jeffrey holds degrees from Harvard College (AB in Music cum laude), the Juilliard School (MM in Historical Performance), and Carnegie Mellon University (MM in Conducting). His principal teachers include Robert Page and Jameson Marvin in conducting; Louis Nagel in piano; and Kenneth Weiss, Don O. Franklin, and Barbara Weiss in harpsichord. In addition to his performing activities, Grossman is also active as a music engraver (primarily using the SCORE music publishing system) and has prepared editions for many major publishers and ensembles. In 2014, his engraved score of Elliott Carter’s final composition won first prize in the chamber ensembles division of the Music Publishers Association Paul Revere Awards for Graphic Excellence.
