Let's Welcome New JCM-LA Director Dr. Stella Cho


Jackie Petitto

"Hello, I am very excited to be the new director of the JCM LA branch. Chamber music has always played a vital role in my musical life and I strongly believe in the power of chamber music not only as a tool to grow and develop love for music-making, but also nurturing humility and compassion with one another.

I very much look forward to helping continue the mission of JCM and working with the wonderful JCM community!"
