Jillon Stoppels Dupree
harpsichord & organ
Acclaimed as “one of the country’s top baroque musicians” (Seattle Weekly), harpsichordist Jillon Stoppels Dupree has captivated audiences in such cities as London, Amsterdam, Chicago, New York, Boston, and Los Angeles. Her playing, described by the Chicago Tribune as “lively and colorful,” can be heard on the Meridian , Wild Boar, Decca and Delos record labels; she has also appeared live on BBC England, Polish National Television, CBS Television and National Public Radio.
Jillon has been a featured artist at the York Early Music Festival (England), the Boston Early Music Festival, the Berkeley Early Music Festival, the National Music Museum, the Cleveland Museum of Art, the Santa Barbara Art Museum, and numerous universities and colleges. Her world premiere recording of Philip Glass’s Concerto for Harpsichord and Chamber Orchestra, released in 2006 on the Orange Mountain Music label, has been described as “superb” by the New York Times.
Jillon has collaborated with some of today’s foremost musicians and ensembles, including recorder virtuoso Marion Verbruggen, violinists Stanley Ritchie and Jaap Schröder, sopranos Ellen Hargis and Julianne Baird, the ensembles Musica Pacifica and The Newberry Consort, dancer Anna Mansbridge, the Seattle Symphony (with whom she has recorded), and the Seattle Baroque Orchestra.
