Performers:
Meghan Jacoby - flute, Daniel Ascadi - guitar


Flutist Meghan Jacoby has performed as a chamber and orchestral musician throughout the United States, England, Italy, Mexico, Costa Rica, Peru, and Cuba. She is principal Blute of Symphony by the Sea and piccolo player with the Cape Ann Symphony. As a freelance musician, she has also performed with Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP), Emmanuel Music, and with the Portland, Indian Hill, and Cape Cod Symphonies. Recent international travels have taken her to Lima, Peru, where she was a guest artist at the International Festival of Flutists, and to Cremona, Italy, where she is on faculty in the summers at the Cremona International Music Academy. During the academic year, Meghan is on faculty at Saint Anselm College, Phillips Academy Andover, Powers Music School, and Concord Academy, where she also serves as the Director of Chamber Music.

Teaching is vital to Meghan’s identity as a musician, a trait which has been instilled in her by her own teachers, Trevor Wye, Robert Willoughby, Linda Toote, and Michelle Caimotto. Her students consistently earn spots in the MMEA district and all-state ensembles and the many youth orchestras in the Boston area, including every level of orchestra/wind ensemble at New England Conservatory Preparatory School. Many of them have gone on to study at music schools throughout the US and Europe.

Meghan’s students have also been prizewinners at numerous competitions, including: YoungArts, American Protege Series at Carnegie Hall, International Shenzen (China) Woodwind Competition, Southwestern Youth Music Festival, Honors Performance Series at Carnegie Hall, Great Composers Competition Series, as well as Concerto Competition Winners with the Waltham Philharmonic, Belmont High School Orchestra, Seven Hills Symphony, and the Phillips Academy Andover Orchestra.

Meghan holds a Doctorate of Musical Arts degree from Boston University.



As an acclaimed performer, educator, and arts administrator, Dr. Daniel Acsadi is creating exciting new directions for the classical guitar. Guided by his wide-ranging interests and Hungarian-American heritage, Dan’s musical projects and teaching link the great musical traditions of Europe and the Americas.

Since winning his first guitar competition at the age of fifteen, Dan has performed extensively throughout the United States both as soloist and chamber musician. He has created arrangements of 19th-century art songs, Portuguese fado, Brazilian bossa nova, Hungarian classical and folk music, and American traditional songs.

Serving as the Director of the Boston Classical Guitar Society for seven years, Dan was instrumental in the revitalization of New England’s most prominent international guitar concert series while connecting the region’s professionals, students, aficionados, and audiences through innovative programming and projects. For the annual BCGS New England Guitar Ensembles Festival, he has commissioned new works from Clarice Assad, Robert Beaser, Dusan Bogdanovic, Carlo Domeniconi, Roland Dyens, Nikita Koshkin, Pavel Steidl, and Andrew York.

Beginning his musical studies at six, Dan holds doctoral and master’s degrees from New England Conservatory and a BA from Cornell University, where he double majored in music and economics. His principal teachers have included Eliot Fisk, Pablo Cohen, John Hall, and Alexandre Pier Federici. He has performed in masterclasses with Leo Brouwer, Manuel Barrueco, Eduardo Fernandez, Adam Holzman, Bruce Holzman, and Renato Butturi. Dan is a former Associate Director of Boston GuitarFest, co-founder of its Youth Guitar Workshop, and former faculty at Bridgewater State University and Longy School of Music of Bard College.

Dan is currently faculty at Tufts University and Director of Education and Community Programs at Powers Music School in Belmont, MA. He is president of the board of directors of the Boston Classical Guitar Society.
