Jennifer Cable earned her Doctor of Musical Arts and Master of Music degrees from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, and her Bachelor of Music degree from Oberlin College. Post-graduate studies included the Aspen Music Festival, the Academie für Alte Musik (Bremen, Germany), the Schubert Institute (Baden-bei-Wien, Austria) and the Britten-Pears Institute for Advanced Musical Study (Aldeburgh, England). As a performer, Jennifer focused her attention primarily on music before 1800 (she was a founding member of Affetti Musicali, originally based in NYC, then moving to Richmond, VA) and in contemporary music, having had the privilege of premiering multiple works over the course of her performing career.
Jennifer is a Professor of Music at the University of Richmond, Richmond, Virginia, where she coordinates the Vocal Studies Program. A Qi Gong instructor, Jennifer trained with Qi Gong Master Teacher Dr. Aihan Kuhn, C.M.D. She has shared Qi Gong at conferences and classes in the US and abroad, introducing other musicians to this mindful practice and how it can aid in energizing the body and in reducing stage fright.
Jennifer is also a certified teacher for the Koru Mindfulness Program and is involved in campus outreach centered on mindfulness and meditation. Departing from the field of music, Jennifer is also a certified equine massage therapist, joyfully embracing the opportunity to work with horses across the Commonwealth of Virginia.
