An avid chamber musician and scholar, violinist Jeremiah Blacklow is known for his sincere playing and uniquely personal style. He began studying the violin when he was three, and debuted in Carnegie’s Weill Hall at the age of eight. As a performer, Jeremiah has taken the stage at important cultural centers across the globe including Incheon’s Tri-Bowl, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the Neue Galerie.
Jeremiah was concertmaster of the Harvard Radcliffe Orchestra from 2018-20, while completing a Bachelor’s degree in Slavic Languages and Literature at Harvard College. During the time of his Master’s studies at Juilliard (2020-22), he was concertmaster of The Juilliard Orchestra on multiple occasions. In addition to his Master’s degree in Violin Performance, he also received a Career Grant from the school this spring. His education at Juilliard was made possible by the support of a Fidelity Foundation Scholarship and the Dorothy Starling Scholarship, and he owes much of his musical growth to devoted teachers Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho, who have both guided him for over a decade.
Jeremiah is committed to sharing his love for classical music with the community. Recently, he has toured with Project Music Heals Us, a non-profit organization which brings high-quality live music performances to marginalized communities. Over the past five years, Jeremiah and his childhood friend, cellist/pianist Noah Krauss, have performed frequently together as a violin-piano duo. The Blacklow-Krauss Duo has presented concerts throughout the Northeast, and self-produced an album of Brahms and Bartok Sonatas.
Jeremiah is a featured artist of The Omega Ensemble and the second violinist of the Renaissance Quartet with fellow founding members and alumni of the Perlman Music Program Randall Goosby, Daniel Hass, and Jameel Martin. In 2022, he won Grand Prix at the Marker and Pioneer International Music Competition. He plays an 1856 Giuseppe Rocca violin, formerly used by legendary violinist Maud Powell.
