Jeremy Kiolbassa

piano

Jeremy's fascination with sacred music the organ began in his formative years at St. Hyacinth Catholic School in Chicago. In childhood he demonstrated a natural ability to play by ear, and his abilities developed without formal training into adolescence, teaching himself to read music while continuing to play by ear and improvise. His formal musical training began relatively late as he attended Whitney Young High School in Chicago. While refining his keyboard technique, he also gained a great love for choral repertoire during this time, singing in choirs under the baton of two great conductors, Scott Arkenberg and Gloria Brown. He went on to attend VanderCook College of Music to study music education. He studied applied piano performance in the studio of Ms. Marianne Krupa and studied choral conducting with Dr. Robert Sinclair. He also served as the choral librarian and assistant for two years. He had the privilege of studying with Dr. Elizabeth Naegele at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago for just over 3 years. One of his choral compositions , "My People, What Have I Done to You?" was recently published by GIA Publications.
