Described as “vividly colored” (The New York Times), “replete with imaginative textures” (The Dallas Morning News), and “exhilarating” (The Philadelphia Inquirer), Jeremy Gillʼs music has earned him residencies and fellowships with the Bogliasco Foundation (2017), Copland House (2015), American Opera Projects (2013–14), and the MacDowell Colony (2013), and major grants from New Music USA (2017, 2015) and Chamber Music America (2011). In 2015 he traveled to Cuba with the first American Artist Delegation to the Havana Contemporary Music Festival, a historic trip documented by NPR, and in 2017 the Boston Modern Orchestra Project released a new recording of Jeremyʼs orchestral music, conducted by Gil Rose and featuring clarinetist Chris Grymes, oboist Erin Hannigan, and pianist Ching-Yun Hu, along with the Marsh Chapel Choir. He has worked extensively with the Grammy-winning Parker Quartet, who recorded his hour-long Capriccio for Innova Recordings in 2015.
Premieres of his music during the 2017–18 season include the tone poem Ainulindalë by the Harrisburg Symphony Orchestra; Six Pensées de Pascal by the Philadelphia-based virtuoso vocal sextet Variant 6 in New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia; and the Asian and American premieres of Fantasie-Transcription: “Wie selig sind doch die” by Rubinstein Prize-winning pianist Ching Yun Hu. Jeremy will premiere …and everywhere the sea with Chris Grymes at National Sawdust in 2019. Jeremyʼs major composition project for the season is a four-hand piano concerto for Orion Weiss and Shai Wosner, to be premiered by the Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra under JoAnn Falletta in July 2019.
Jeremy is active as a pianist and conductor, particularly of vocal music. During the 2016–17 he conducted two productions at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum under the auspices of Beth Morrision Projects, featuring Anthony Roth Costanzo in works by Nico Muhly and Abigail Fischer in Missy Mazzoliʼs Song from the Uproar. Other notable premieres include works by composer Fang Man featuring Lucy Shelton, Eric Owens, and Evan Hughes and his own chamber opera Letters from Quebec to Providence in the Rain with Lyric Theatre @ Illinois. Jeremy was the first Composer in Residence with Chautauqua Opera (2016), where three new works of his were premiered, and also served as cover conductor to General and Artistic Director Steven Osgood and as a member of the coaching staff. Most recently he served as assistant conductor to Maestro Osgood for Juilliard Operaʼs 2018 production of Benjamin Brittenʼs Turn of the Screw.
