Jacky Jiaqi Liu, Composer, Pianist

Jacky Jiaqi Liu (b. 2002) is a Chinese-born US-based composer and pianist who interested in the intersection of culture, literature, and social justice. He believes that the social recognition should become the basic instinct of a composer, so that most of his works find its expression in his reflection of society and humanity as a central point. As a composer who focus works on sounds and colors, Jacky is also exploring a way of expression that requires the audience to engage a retrospect and reflection.

Jacky has been honored with 2023 ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Young Composer Awards; the winner of the Gena Raps String Quartet Prize 2023; the recipient of Honorable Mentions at Composers AXIOM Competition 2023; one of five composers selected to attend Zodiac Music Academy and Festival 2023; the winner of 9th Annual Youth Music Composition Competition 2022. Jacky is currently pursuing his Bachelor of Music degree at The Juilliard School, studying composition with Melinda Wagner. He was also the mentee of composers Richard Danielpour, Lucas Richman, Yihan Chen, and Changyuan Liu. Some of his score have been published at T.U.X. Peoples Music, Sheetmusicplus, J.W.Pepper, and Midwest Sheet Music.

Jackys work was performed across Austria, Serbia, USA and China, including in venues such as Ehrbar Hall in Vienna, Bosendorfer Hall at Mozarthaus, Culture Center in Belgrade and Kragujevac, Lincoln Center, The Juilliard School, Beijing Central Conservatory of Music, Tianjin Grand Theatre, Steinway & Sons etc. He has collaborated with ensembles and musicians including conductor Lucas Richman, members of Banger Symphony Orchestra, producer Katie Jenkins, vocalist Brittany Hewitt, cellist Gaeum Kim, and pianist Xiaodan Sun.
