A member of the Young Steinway Artists roster and critically acclaimed, “a clear technical virtuoso”, “a rare talent”; “a true Wunderkind”, pianist and native Chicagoan Jeremy Jordan burst on the music scene at age 9 playing Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 1 in a live televised performance, followed by appearances on the acclaimed radio program From The Top and >From The Top: Live from Carnegie Hall performing Liszt. He has twice again appeared at Carnegie Hall playing Chopin, Liszt, and Wagner.

Jordan attended the Juilliard School where he received undergraduate and graduate degrees in piano performance, studying on the Van Cliburn and Irene Diamond scholarships. He made his concerto debut with Maestro Alan Heatherington and the Ars Viva Symphony Orchestra playing Grieg, followed by performances and recordings of the Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 1 and Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Chicago Sinfonietta and the Czech National Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Paul Freeman.

Mr. Jordan subsequently performed solo and chamber concerts throughout Europe and America including Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Rudolfinum in Prague, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall and the Ravinia Festival. Other notable performances include his appearances with renowned clarinetist Anthony McGill and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, recitals for the American Liszt Society in California and New York, and his own Juilliard lecture-recital celebrating the bicentennials of Liszt and Wagner.

In 2011, Jeremy Jordan was featured in a ‘live’ interview on Chicago’s WFMT Radio program Impromptu with Kerry Frumkin where he performed his own transcriptions of Liszt/Horowitz, Wagner, and Saint Saens.

December 2018 finds Mr. Jordan on a five-city tour of Japan in collaboration concerts with Canadian Brass trumpeter Brandon Ridenour.

Jeremy studied with distinguished pianists Matti Raekallio, Yoshie Akimoto, and Regina Syrkin; and received tutoring from renowned artists including Andre Watts, Jerome Lowenthal, Eteri Andjaparidze, Steve Million, and Ron Perillo.
