Miss Jordan is a freelance violist and has performed throughout Minnesota and the Philadelphia region. She can most recently be heard on the recording of the Grammy nominated orchestra composition Fourth Stream…La banda with the Temple University Symphony Orchestra. When she is not mastering the art of the photocopier or bowing music, one can usually find her doing one of the several activities: baking, bowling, watching reality television, or reveling in her mage-dom in World of Warcraft.
