Mark Zuckerman

Mark Zuckerman (b. 1948) had his first public performance at age 11. His formal music studies began at the Juilliard Preparatory Division and continued at the University of Michigan, Bard College, and Princeton University, where he earned a Ph.D. in composition. His teachers included David Epstein, George B. Wilson (U. of M.), Elie Yarden (Bard), and Milton Babbitt, and J. K. Randall (Princeton). Zuckerman has served on the music faculties at Princeton and Columbia Universities, teaching a wide variety of subjects ranging from a popular jazz survey course to graduate courses on esoteric twentieth-century music theory to computer music.

Zuckerman’s music includes works for virtuoso soloists, chamber ensembles, vocalists, strings, orchestra, wind ensemble, and a cappella chorus. His work is recorded on Centaur Records, Phoenix USA, Living Artists, CRI, DGK Records, and YIVO.

Zuckerman’s choral music has been performed and recorded by, among others, the Gregg Smith Singers, Chicago a cappella, and the Goldene Keyt Singers. His collection of Yiddish choral arrangements has been performed internationally by choruses in Toronto, Amsterdam, Buenos Aires, and Istanbul as well as the United States.
