A harpist based in the Greater Boston area, Jane has played for royalty in Japan, as well as audiences in the UK, Singapore and the United States. Awarded the top prize in the 2016 Atlantic Symphony Concerto Competition, she now holds a substitute position at the Atlantic Symphony as well as the Boston Lyric Opera. Jane also forms part of a harp-oboe duo with her husband, oboist Daniel Stackhouse. Other past ensemble collaborations include the New Hampshire Philharmonic, Symphony Pro Musica, the Quincy Symphony Orchestra and the Singapore Flute Ensemble. Prior to coming to Boston, she was regularly heard giving weekly–sometimes daily–solo performances at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
Jane holds a Master of Music degree in Harp Performance as well as a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Boston Conservatory, where she studied with world-renowned harpist Ina Zdorovetchi. Other principal teachers include Yu-Hsin Huang and Kae Chee Wong. Other than harp, she also studied piano with Timothy Ku and Shane Thio, voice with soprano Ae-Ree Jeong, liuqin (Chinese lute) with Singapore Chinese Orchestra Zhong Ruan principal Rong Hui Zhang, and theory with Josephine Koh.
Jane also obtained a Bachelor of Arts and Social Sciences degree from the National University of Singapore where she majored in Japanese studies and English Literature. When she is not playing the harp, you can probably find her indulging her reading or love of writing.
