Dr. Jaegers has a strong interest in world music, expansion of the clarinet repertoire, and diversification of the canon, particularly through the promotion and commissioning of works by Turkish composers.
Her DMA Document—entitled Turkish Classical Clarinet Repertoire: Performance, Accessibility, and Integration into the Canon, with a Performance Guide to Works by Edward J. Hines and Ahmet Adnan Saygun—is focused on classical clarinet performance in the Republic of Turkey and the value of classical clarinet works by Turkish composers that are a largely unknown segment of clarinet repertoire. Dr. Jaegers traveled to Turkey in 2018 to conduct research for this document. In 2019, Dr. Jaegers gave a lecture recital at The Ohio State University where she performed the works discussed in her document and discussed the importance of this music's integration into the canon of clarinet repertoire.
Dr. Jaegers is working to build on this research through the commissioning and promotion of Turkish-influenced pieces and works by Turkish composers.
