De Paul University
An alumni of the DePaul Community Music Division, Jeremy Jordan began piano studies at the age of four with his parents Mark and Verna. He came to the CMD when he was nine years old to study with Regina Syrkin and in that same year gave a televised performance of Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1. Other on-air appearances include a radio performance on From the Top in 2005 as part of the Mephisto Trio and a televised solo performance on NPR in 2007 as part of From the Top: Live from Carnegie Hall.
After winning the 2006 Steinway Piano Concerto Competition, Jeremy made his orchestral debut with Maestro Alan Heatherington and the Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra performing Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 1. He made his European debut six months later with the Czech National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Music Director Maestro Paul Freeman. A repeat performance was given in 2007 with the Chicago Sinfonietta at Symphony Center. An active composer as well as performer, Jeremy’s Fantasie No. 3 for piano won first place in the Music Teachers National Association’s Young Composer’s Competition, and his Nocturne for Piano, Oboe and Bassoon was premiered on NPR.
Jeremy is currently studying piano with Matti Raekallio on the Howard & Ethel B. Ross Scholarship, the Bruno Raikin Memorial Piano Scholarship, and the Van Cliburn Scholarship at The Juilliard School where he will begin his third year of studies in the fall.
