Jacob Hanegan, Cello

Cellist Jacob Hanegan is excited to join the musicians of the Lakes Area Music Festival for his first season in 2022. Jacob is the principal cellist of the Illinois Philharmonic Orchestra, with whom he has been a featured soloist, along with appearing on WFMT and the Dame Myra Hess Memorial concert series with the IPO Quartet. As a lover of opera, he currently serves as the principal cellist of the Chicago Opera Theater, and previously spent two seasons performing with the Des Moines Metro Opera, as well as serving as principal of the Aspen Opera Center Orchestra, the Shepherd School Opera Orchestra, and the Eastman Opera Orchestra. Along with these roles, Jake also enjoys regular performances with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, Seattle Opera, Sarasota Orchestra, and the Pacific Northwest Ballet. A 2018 alum of The New World Symphony, Jacob spent his time there working with leading cellists and conductors from around the world under music director Michael Tilson Thomas. Jacob has performed chamber music collaborations with members of the Cleveland Quartet and Emerson Quartet, along with many contemporary music performances in Chicago, Florida, Texas, and New York. Mr. Hanegan is a graduate of the Eastman School of Music under the tutelage of Steven Doane (BM), and Rice University Shepherd School of Music where he studied with Desmond Hoebig (MM). A recent transplant to Milwaukee, Jake is happily engaged to his much-acclaimed harpist, and fellow Lakes Area Music Festival musician, fiancé Julia Coronelli, principal harpist of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.
