Jantsch graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy boarding high school in 2002, and is a 2006 graduate of the University of Michigan. While attending university, Jantsch auditioned for the New York Philharmonic and The Philadelphia Orchestra. She was a semi-finalist for the New York tuba position. She won the Philadelphia position of Principal Tuba in February 2006, appointed by music director Christoph Eschenbach. She assumed the chair, full-time, with the 2006-2007 concert season. Jantsch is the youngest member of the Orchestra and is, according to National Public Radio, the first woman to hold a Principal Tuba chair among major orchestras in the United States.
