Jeffrey Zheng


Jeffrey Zheng (b. 2000, Fremont, Calif.) is an American student and composer.

Mr. Zheng grew up in Shanghai, China. His childhood experiences growing up in a non-Western country have been a source of creative inspiration and given him dual insight to a variety of diverse cultures. Jeffrey played the piano for 10 years before picking up the clarinet.

His first foray into composition was for fun with friends during high school arranging a piece To The Moon for clarinet and piano. Subsequent interest drove independent compositions involving various other instrument ensembles including solo piano, and wind trios. Following a dare by a friend involving the popular "leekspin" meme, Jeffrey composed a series of polkas that ignited his interest in composing for larger ensembles. Jeffrey received formal training in composition with Dr. Scott Lindroth at Duke as well as advising from Dr. Verena Mösenbichler-Bryant.

Mr. Zheng completed his bachelor's degree as an Amgen Scholar at Duke University in 2022, with plans to pursue a Ph.D. in chemical biology.
