After securing the prestigious position of Principal Timpanist of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, Jason Haaheim decided to launch a new site to serve as an online resource and portfolio for his musical and scientific accomplishments. Yes, Mr. Haaheim is not only an accomplished Timpanist, he’s also an equally accomplished engineer with nearly a dozen patents and twice that many publications. Designed with an eye on the future, Mr. Haaheim has a number of plans on the drawing board for expanding the site’s offerings through 2015.

The site maintains a clean and uncluttered look along with an extensive event calendar that includes all of his Met Opera performances alongside personal appearances. Integrated social sharing functionality, and a wealth of downloadable bio and resume content round out a firm online presence package.

Website Highlights

  • A stunning, glossy all-black design.
  • Bold, classy typography.
  • High resolution downloadable photo gallery in zip format for image.
  • Creative use of Event Management custom set functionality to indicate Met Opera performances that will be broadcast in HD Simulcast or on the radio.
  • Custom designed logo (by Mr. Haaheim no less!).

Jason Haaheim: Principal Timpanist, MET Orchestra

After I won the MET job, it quickly became clear that a high-profile appointment like that needed a high-profile web presence… and my old homegrown cobbled-together personal site wasn’t going to cut it. Enter Venture: he understood my needs better than I did, crafting a site structure that would serve as a sharp and professional baseline, but with lots of room to grow and add content. Aesthetically, he quickly determined my style and preferences, and delivered a look and feel that matched superbly. Venture was quickly responsive to all calls and emails, and the consequent setup and launch cycle was remarkably brief. Moreover, Venture delivers one of the most powerful events manager engines around — it adeptly combines sophisticated capabilities with simple back-end control. All of this helps realize the final goal: far from being another “job” to manage, this site will now help me do mine better.
