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 the GRAMMY®-nominated ALIAS Chamber Ensemble (Nashville), Band of the Castle Guards & Czech Police (Prague), Dolce Suono Ensemble (Philadelphia), Euterpe Quintet (Seoul), and The Gesualdo Six (London).
He is a student of John Corigliano at The Juilliard School.
