Stephanie Kruse, Principal Stephanie Kruse joined the Georgia Philharmonic in 2013. Born and raised in the suburbs of Atlanta, GA, she earned her BA in Music Performance from Emory University where she also studied English and Religion. Several years later, she ventured 'across the pond' to Edinburgh, Scotland where she received her MSc in Childhood Studies from the University of Edinburgh. After returning Stateside for a few months, she found herself back in Europe, Northwest Italy this time, doing an Arts Outreach internship in the Italian Alps for 3 months. She is currently working in education and freelancing around town while exploring other options in youth development. Throughout her musical endeavors, Stephanie has had the privilege to perform in world class venues, such as Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and with a variety of ensembles, such as the Rome Symphony Orchestra and the Edinburgh Grand Opera Orchestra.

Gail Jackson
Gail Jackson Gail Jackson, originally a pianist, has been with the Gerogia Philharmonic for the last few years playing oboe. She is a lover of chamber music and is lucky to have a husband who plays bassoon (in Georgia Philharmonic, as a matter of fact). She and her husband regularly play in small ensembles together and like the community aspect of music.

A lover of chamber music, Dr. Welch is the oboist of the Titan Winds, and has performed with several chamber ensembles in Georgia and Arizona. In 2006, he was selected as winner of the Georgia Institute of Technology Concerto Competition, performing Glazunov’s Concerto in E-flat Major for Alto Saxophone and String Orchestra. In 2014, he was selected as winner of the Atlanta Philharmonic Orchestra Concerto Competition, and will perform Lebrun’s Concerto No. 2 in G minor for Oboe and Orchestra in March 2015. Away from music, Dr. Welch has a PhD in biomedical engineering and works as an engineering consultant and expert witness in the area of injury biomechanics, analyzing bodily injuries to determine their cause and methods for injury prevention.
