A native of Detroit who has lived in Traverse City over half his life, Jeff Haas was educated at the Berlin Hochschule fur Musik and the famed Cass Tech High School where he studied classical piano and composition. Haas went on to find his unique compositional voice, a confluence of his passion for jazz, R&B & funk and Judaic & world music. He has received commissions from Arts Midwest, Chamber Music America, Detroit 300 and the Jewish Federation of Metro Detroit. Jeff’s music has been performed by many jazz and classical notables. In 1996, Haas founded Building Bridges with Music, a Michigan-based non profit that uses the universal language of music to open hearts and minds to a discussion about the importance of open mindedness and respect. Jeff’s multicultural quintet has conducted their respect & diversity workshops in over 750 public schools throughout Michigan. For info, visit www.buildingbridgeswithmusic.o
