Maestro Jay Trottier began his musical journey at the age of five when he accompanied his mother to Mormon Tabernacle Choir rehearsals. Her rich alto voice accompanied by the 11,623 pipe organ stirred his soul, and a life-long interest and passion for music ensued.
Having studied several instruments including piano, oboe and clarinet, his instrument of choice today is the baton -- conducting! He founded and directed the Solano Community Symphony for seven years and has conducted various chamber orchestras throughout the region. In addition, he has produced and directed Messiah in the Fairfield and Vacaville communities for the past 30 years. As the Musical Director of the Temple Hill Symphony Orchestra for the past three years, he has led performances featuring Grammy-nominated violinist Jenny Oaks Baker, Broadway vocalists, and the Bay Area's most talented youth. This is his second year conducting the Nutcracker Ballet.
Jay is retired from the City of Fairfield and resides there with his wife, Becky. They have four children.
