Jacob Beranek is a Wisconsin-born, New York-based composer of classical music rooted in melody. His compositions, inspired by his enthusiasm for artful craftsmanship, often emphasize his love of historical traditions—musical, religious, or 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.
