Jackson Gearing is a classical composer from Denver, Colorado, currently working on writing a symphony during his one month stay at the NES Artist Residency. He has previously written various chamber pieces for wind instruments, large brass ensemble music, and music for wind ensemble and orchestra. He also frequently conducts his larger ensemble music, such as Meditations for Brass and River, the latter winning an “Outstanding Performance of a Student Composition” award from the Lamont School of Music in June 2023. This residency follows his first orchestral premiere of “Moskstraumen,” an 8-minute piece performed by the Sofia Philharmonic Orchestra in Bulgaria.
