Described as “vividly colored” (The New York Times), “replete with imaginative textures” (The Dallas Morning News), and “exhilarating” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), Jeremy Gillʼs music has earned him residencies and fellowships with American Opera Projects, the Bogliasco Foundation, Chautauqua Opera, Copland House, and the MacDowell Colony, as well as major grants from Chamber Music USA, the League of American Orchestras, and New Music USA. In November 2015, Jeremy traveled to Havana, Cuba as part of a select group of composers assembled by the American Composers Forum as the first US Artist Delegation to the Havana Contemporary Music Festival, a historic trip documented by ACF and National Public Radio.
Jeremy has received major commissions from the American Guild of Organists, American Opera Projects, Chamber Music America, Chautauqua Opera, Concert Artists Guild, the Dallas Symphony, Dolce Suono Ensemble, the Harrisburg Symphony, the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and Network for New Music. He has served as Composer-in-Residence with Chautauqua Opera and the Harrisburg Symphony.
The Grammy-winning Parker Quartet recorded Jeremyʼs hour-long Capriccio on the innova Recordings label, which Classical Minnesota Public Radio listed as one of five “must hear” releases for August 2015. Albany Records has released two discs of Jeremyʼs music: Chamber Music, featuring flutist Mimi Stillman, pianist Charles Abramovic, the Extension Ensemble, and the Parker Quartet; and Book of Hours/Helian, featuring baritone Jonathan Hays and pianist Peter Orth, which was honored as a “Top Ten Classical Releases of 2011” by Philadelphia City Paper.
Jeremy is an active pianist and conductor, and has appeared in concert with such major artists as Anthony Roth Costanzo, Eric Owens, and Lucy Shelton, and as a featured performing artist at prominent venues including the Mansion at Strathmore, Merkin Hall, and National Sawdust. Upon his appearance with the Dolce Suono Ensemble and Lucy Shelton in music of his own, alongside works by Olivier Messiaen and Shulamit Ran on the Ear Heart Music series in Brooklyn, the New York Times deemed him “a fine pianist.” Particularly devoted to the performance of music by his contemporaries, he has conducted over 35 world premieres. In 2012, he edited A Dance of Polar Opposites, a theoretical-philosophical work written between 1955–2005 by his former teacher George Rochberg, published by the University of Rochester Press.
