Specializing in artistic interpretations of popular favorites, classics, and original compositions, Jennifer Warren-Baker is a Washington, DC-based event pianist, composer, and a master at improvisation. She is also the dance accompanist for The Loudoun School of Ballet, in Leesburg, VA. A versatile musician and entertainer, Jennifer is comfortable in many styles and can play music that appeals to many generations and tastes. Her passionate and elegant piano music is in demand for Washington area events and organizations. Jennifer has performed for events at many notable DC venues such as The Organization of American States (AIPAC New Leadership Summit and Banquet 2013), The George Washington Masonic National Memorial (Memorial Theater), and Union Station (VSA International Festival 2004). In August of 2013, Jennifer had the honor of being selected as the resident pianist for Salamander Resort and Spa's inaugural year. At the five-star luxury resort in Middleburg, VA, Jennifer entertained guests three nights per week in the resort's breathtaking lobby ("The Living Room"). Jennifer was privileged to be the in-house entertainment when First Lady Michelle Obama stayed at the resort in the spring of 2014. Her experience there has helped her to develop her own unique piano style, a hybrid blend of classical technique and jazz harmony, replete with runs, rapid arpeggios, flamboyant endings, mesmerizing cross-hand acrobatics, and stream-of-consciousness improvisation. Jennifer's repertoire is vast, including:

Classic rock from the 50's through 90's such as Elton John, Billy Joel, Sting, Eric Clapton,

Jazz Standards such as Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, Rogers & Hart

Popular/ top-40 hits of today, from Coldplay to John Legend

Classical piano music and themes from the world's most famous operas, ballets, and symphonies (examples: La Boheme,

Pachelbel's Canon, Clair de Lune, Fur Elise, Moonlight Sonata, Swan Lake, La Traviata, Blue Danube)

Movie/ TV themes like St. Elmo's Fire, Somewhere in Time, and Let it Go (from Frozen)

Broadway hits from Phantom, Sound of Music, Les Mis, and more.

Ragtime and boogie such as The Entertainer and Linus & Lucy

Jennifer's original piano compositions

Special requests, including Christian music, Happy Birthday, and more....

Hire Jennifer now, and your event will shimmer with life!
***********************************************************
HOW AM I UNIQUE? It is hard to box me into one genre. A writer who once interviewed me said,
"Her music is her own, and it is rhythmic and moving. Influenced by Scott Joplin, Alberto Ginestera, Gershwin, Debussy and Ravel, she fuses many different musical styles to produce her own innovative sounds. Her sense of internal rhythm coupled with her eclectic composition permits Jennifer to create a range of musical expression, all different yet exhibiting her identifiable style." (Blue Ridge Leader, 11/13/98)

WHERE DID I BEGIN? I received my classical training from George Mason University, where I earned a BA in Music in 1999. After graduating, I moved to western Loudoun County, VA, about 50 minutes west of DC. In the next fourteen years, I served hundreds of families as a piano teacher. During those years I also continued to develop my gift of playing the piano by serving as church pianist and choir accompanist. By request, I also began making regular appearances in the musical theatre community, serving in many capacities, including accompanist, music director, arranger, and composer. During those years, I played for over twenty shows -- greatly augmenting my showtune repertoire. In 2004 I was commissioned to compose the music for a Very Special Arts production. In 2007, I was commissioned to arrange the music for an original musical by Tom Sweitzer ("Sky"), a production which featured a Helen-Hayes award-winning actress. In 2006, I recorded an album and self-produced a concert of my original work at the Sheila C. Johnson Performing Arts Center (The Hill School, Middleburg, VA). In addition to musical theatre, I have played many parties in private homes, and have played wedding receptions at Lightfoot Restaurant (Leesburg, VA), The Goodstone Inn (Middleburg, VA), and the Hyatt Fair Lakes (Fairfax, VA), and more. I have played wedding ceremonies at many churches in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties, as well as The Goodstone Inn (Middleburg, VA).

Jennifer is an amazingly talented performer, entertainer, and musician. My wife and I have been involved in music for a combined 60 plus years, and we can assure you that you cannot go wrong by hiring Jennifer for any type of event. We had her at an in-home holiday party and she is a true professional, but also warm, accommodating, and just blended beautifully among our guests. Her musical ability is such that she would be an outstanding choice for any party, wedding, special occasion or other venue. She is a terrific musician and exceptionally versatile. 5 out of 5.
