Jennifer Laursen Lives in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates where she is a founder and Co-Director of Chamber Music Abu Dhabi, an organization dedicated to using music as a vehicle for cultural exchange and community development. Previously she served as Vice-President of the Board of the Durham Youth Orchestras, in Durham, North Carolina, expanding the program to include two wind ensembles, a chamber orchestra, two training orchestras, and a concerto competition. Later she co-founded the Mallarme Youth Chamber Orchestra, a pre-conservatory program for youth in North Carolina, now housed at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Trained as a biologist and an educator, Jennifer came to music through her children, both conservatory students in violin performance, one doubling in composition.
