About Jacob G.

Percussionist, educator, and administrative leader Jacob Gutierrez is crafting a career model of a true 21st century musician. With experience ranging from his touring percussion trio to performances at the Kennedy Center, Gutierrez is charting a career path of entrepreneurialism in tandem with award-winning musicianship.

Gutierrez is most known for his work in cultivating the percussion repertoire, creating evocative concert experiences that both entertain and educate. To this end, he and his two brothers co-founded 3G Percussion, a percussion trio that has toured in Texas and across Canada, and has been featured on multiple Texas radio and press outlets. 3G was also the anointed Guest Ensemble at the 2018 Space City New Music Festival, where he gave the world premiere of Marcus Maroney’s “Escape,” in addition to sixteen other works by composers from around the United States, Mexico, and Germany.

Outside 3G, Gutierrez remains active in soliciting new music—he is a member of several consortiums to commission new works. His career includes performances of percussion’s most celebrated works, including Kaija Saariaho’s “Six Japanese Gardens”, Joseph Schwantner’s “Velocities”, and Alejandro Vinao’s “Book of Grooves”.

Looking to make as deep an impact as possible for the artistic community, Mr. Gutierrez also serves as Artistic Director of Space City Performing Arts, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves as an educational resource for emerging artists. Now based in Baltimore, Gutierrez is pursuing a Graduate Performance Diploma from the Peabody Institute under renowned percussionist Robert Van Sice. Gutierrez holds a Bachelor of Music diploma in Education and Performance from the University of Houston, and a Master of Music diploma from Peabody.
