Ninxia University Residency

PARMA composer Jeff Jacob recently returned from a three week residency in Guyan, China at Ninxia University. He performed a formal piano recital, which included his most recent composition REAWAKENING. On top of performing the recital he gave masterclasses for both pianists and composers.

Ninxia University is notable for several reasons. It was one of the first colleges allowed to accept foreign students by the Chinese Ministry of Education. Since 1992 the college has educated students from around the world.

Jeff’s music has sent him far from his Indiana home as of late. Recently, he was part of PARMA’s April trip to Cuba to record his piece for orchestra and piano, AWAKENING, performed by the National Symphony Orchestra.

The team at PARMA would like to extend a congratulations to Jeff for his busy and rewarding 2016 season.
