Jenny Beck

Composition

2017 Fellow

Jenny Beck grew up in rural Pennsylvania where the sounds of the woods stirred her imagination at a young age. Her intense musical language explores a sound world that is vast, visceral, and restrained in equal measure.

Jenny has participated in workshops and festivals including the Copland House CULTIVATE Institute, Norfolk New Music Workshop, Atlantic Center for the Arts, June In Buffalo, Wellesley Composers Conference, the Tanglewood Music Center, and the Weill Music Institute Professional Training Workshop at Carnegie Hall with Kaija Saariaho and Anssi Karttunen. She is currently pursuing a PhD at Princeton University.
