With performances at such prominent venues such as Carnegie Hall in New York City, Ravinia in Chicago, and the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., the Amelia Trio has made its mark and impressed classical music enthusiasts. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) presented the ensemble with its Award for Adventurous Programming. Jason was invited by NPR to be a part of its Residency Program, resulting in a week of live performances and interviews which reached an estimated 1.5 million listeners. He was awarded top prize in both the Concert Artists Guild International Competition and the Munich ARD International Competition. He has had the great pleasure of performing in concert with musicians such as Yo-Yo Ma, members of the Beaux Arts trio, and the Cleveland, Orion, Emerson, and Guarneri String Quartets.
