Meet Jeff Deroche a Fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center

Travel Expert Stephanie Abrams hopes everyone will visit Tanglewood for their 2015 season because the 2014 season was so good. This segment welcomes Jeff Deroche, a percussionist originally from Skokie Illinois, who auditioned and was accepted for the second year as a fellow. Like many musicians applying for a fellowship with the Tanglewood Music Center, he auditioned several times before being accepted. During his audition he played selections from several orchestral compositions on different percussion instruments. Jeff started playing snare drums towards the end of elementary school and his passion for the marimba in particular started him on his path. Jeff attended DePaul University in Chicago and after graduation attended the Cleveland Institute of Music. In addition to the marimba Jeff also plays the xylophone which he describes as fundamentally similar but practically very different and tonally distinct.

Jeff Deroche is a current fellow at the Tanglewood Music Center and he describes it as an 8 week workshop for young musicians (generally between the ages of 19-27). Host Stephanie Abrams adds that the center acts as an incubator program for young and emerging musicians to interact with and learn from practicing master musicians. The Tanglewood Music Center arranges a series of concert performances throughout Tanglewood's regular summer season.

In this segment Jeff gives us a treat by playing a bit of live music on both the marimba and the xylophone to give us a sense of the different between the instruments as well as the range. In contrast to the marimba, Jeff describes the xylophone as having thicker bars and a sharper tone whereas the marimba is a little more mellow. Throughout Jeff's two fellowships at the Tanglewood Music Center he has made lots of great memories, met other musicians and played and learned from master musicians both from the BSO and visiting from other institutions.

Jeff's future plans include playing for the US Navy Band. He'll be attending boot camp first, of course, and is looking forward to both experiences. Mostly he'll be stationed in Washington D.C., though there may be some amount of touring with the Navy Band.
