Meet Jeremy Morgan, director
Jeremy N. Morgan grew up playing piano and trumpet in Bloomington, MN, and graduated from Bloomington Jefferson studying under Dr. Earl Benson. He got his degree in Music Education from the University of Utah, studying under Dr. Barry Kopetz, Scott Hagen, and Dr. Mark Ely. He also studied composition under Tully Cathey and Mark Johnson, with the University of Utah premiering one of his first works for wind ensemble. After moving back to Minnesota, he joined the South of the River Community Band (SOR) in Eagan, MN, where he played, at various times: cornet, percussion, oboe, tuba, and alto clarinet. While there, the band premiered over a dozen of his compositions. He accepted a co-director roll of the SOR band for many years until stepping into a new full-time director position with the Northern Winds Concert Band. He lives in North Minneapolis..
