Roxan Jurkevich

Biography

Roxan Jurkevich has been Principal Percussionist and Assistant Principal Timpanist with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra in Spain since January 1992. A native New Yorker, she has played on various Broadway shows (West Side Story, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Guys and Dolls), as well as in multiple symphonic and contemporary music groups, both overseas (Israel Philharmonic; London Philharmonia Orchestra; Royal Flemish Philharmonic, Antwerp, Belgium), as well as in the NY/Tri-state area (Metropolitan Opera, Oratorio Society of NY, New Jersey Symphony, Stamford Symphony and Opera, ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble), Bang On a Can, Drumfire, etc...).

She teaches percussion privately and as a self-proclaimed synth-nerd, also produces electronic and electro-acoustic music in her home studio. She also contracts "on the side", both small regional tours as well as single-program rehearsals and concerts in Spain. Roxan has recorded with her Latin Grammy-winning orchestra for major record labels such as EMI, RCA/Victor, Decca and Naxos, and is a proud endorser of Zildjian Cymbals, Pearl Drums, RhythmTech Percussion, Freer Percussion, and JG Percussion. Ms. Jurkevich is a graduate of The Juilliard School with Bachelors and Masters degrees in Percussion Performance.
