Jay began her musical journey on the piano bench at age 5 followed by adding the flute at age 10 and cello at age 14. Playing the cello became her favorite instrument and she has maintained that love ever since! Jay and her family have lived in Bend for more than 14 years. Jay played with the Desert Sage Orchestra in early years with the Cascade School of Music, and currently plays with the cello ensemble Celli Belli. When not playing music with her family, Jay can be found reading, rock climbing, or Nordic skiing.
