Ladue Horton Watkins High School

Jacob Sheldon is currently a sophomore at Ladue Horton Watkins High School. He started playing the viola at the age of ten, and then he picked up the violin when he was 13 years old. He is currently studying viola with Ingrid Popp and violin with Angie Smart. This will be Jacob’s first season as a member of the St. Louis Symphony Youth Orchestra. He has also been a member of the Young People’s Concert Orchestra and Young People’s Symphonic Orchestra at the Community Music School of Webster University.

When Jacob is not playing his instrument, he participates on his school’s swim team. Jacob would like to thanks his family, friends, and teachers for supporting him throughout his music career.
