Terry Klinefelter is at home with both classical music and jazz. Or as the Philadelphia Inquirer said of her, on the cosmic cusp where Mozart might mingle with Mingus. As a jazz player, she’s been compared with giants like Keith Jarrett and Steve Kuhn, and the list of those with whom she’s played comprise a who’s who of the jazz world. As an example, her recent CD Zingaro, features, among others, bassist Lee Smith, drummer Byron Landham, vocalists Denise King and Anne Sciolla, and John Swana playing Electronic Valve Instrument. In the world of classical music, Klinefelter serves on the faculty of West Chester University, performed with the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra, the Kennett Symphony Orchestra, the Chester County Pops, and the Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet.
