Jessica McJunkins

Opus 15 - Moving Through Gateways, Part 2

Performing alongside Beyonce is just one of the many accolades Jessica McJunkins is proud of. The full-time freelancer/contractor has collaborated with many stars in the pop music industry. She speaks with Garrett about the challenges of traversing this corner of the violin world. Jessica compares the all-black Gateways Music Festival to Beyonce’s all-black Coachella performance, and she explains why “Queen Bey” serves the next generation of classical musicians by putting string players on the main stage. In the prelude, Garrett and Scott talk about Jay-Z’s deal with the NFL, and they respond to a listener who questions Scott’s involvement with Trilloquy.
