    He's a great music maker and Ballet West is lucky to have him aboard.

    He's also the grandson of President Dallin H. Oaks.

    I have followed Maestro Oaks' career for the past decade. I've also worked under his baton. The story deftly captures his particular charisma and gifts.

    Jared is able to communicate in subtle gestures what other conductors stop to explain in 1000 words, or more. Utah, the West, America and the world are fortunate to have tapped into his abilities to contribute in his extraordinary ways. Let's keep him around for a very long time!
