Jennifer Drake is a conductor, violist, teacher, clinician, camp director (Idaho Viola Camp) and the fourth slowest runner in Boise. She plays in the Boise Philharmonic and Boise Baroque Orchestra, and has performed at the 33rd International Viola Congress in Reykjavik, Iceland and the International Bass Clarinet Convention in Rotterdam, Holland. Jen is also the principal violist for the Fairbanks Summer Arts Festival and is the director of Idaho Viola Camp. She has also been the cover girl for HerLife magazine. When she is not living the obviously glamorous lifestyle that being a conductor and cover girl must afford, Jen is calling the vet for the dogs, thinking of how to avoid grocery shopping, and planning trips with her husband, Chad Marvin. She has completed a 70.3 Ironman as well as RAGBRAI, the bike ride across Iowa. Jen has a Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance from Michigan State University. Despite attending MSU, Jen cannot tell you anything about the football team aside from their recent victory over the University of Michigan. Go Spartans!
