Jeremy Howard Beck

For Jeremy Howard Beck, writing music is an integral, urgent part of a life lived in search of extremes, adventures, and adrenaline—lifelong passions for roller coasters and gymnastics have lent his music intense, visceral physicality and emotional immediacy.

His music has been performed across the country: at the 25th annual Bang on a Can Marathon; MYTHOS, a concert benefiting Education Through Music-Los Angeles (California); the Bang on a Can Summer Festival at MASSMoCA (Massachusetts); the International Trombone Festival (Austin, Texas); the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival (Connecticut); and New York venues Symphony Space, The Cell, Galapagos Art Space, The Tank, and the Gershwin Hotel.

He is the recipient, for his trombone quartet Awakening, of a 2011 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Award, and his first symphony, Metropolis, was awarded Honorable Mention in the 2010 ASCAP/CBDNA Frederick Fennell Prize competition.
