Jacob Beranek is a Wisconsin-born, New York-based composer of classical music rooted in melody. His compositions are infused with his love of historical traditions—musical, religious, or even his Czech heritage.
Beranek served as the inaugural Composer-in-Residence of the Midsummer’s Music Festival (Door County, USA) from 2017–20. His works have been championed by such acclaimed groups as The Gesualdo Six (London), the Band of the Castle Guards & Czech Police (Prague), the Dolce Suono Ensemble (Philadelphia), and the GRAMMY®-nominated ALIAS Chamber Ensemble (Nashville).
He is a student of John Corigliano at The Juilliard School.
