Jackie Dempsey

Artistic Director
Jackie Dempsey’s music has been called “hypnotic” by The New York Times, “gloriously eccentric” by Time Out New York and was nominated for Best Broadway Score by The Friends of New York Theater. With Squonk Opera, she has created twelve multimedia productions and has been touring nationally and internationally for over two decades. Last year, she was awarded an Investing in Professional Artists grant from The Pittsburgh Foundation and Heinz Endowments. She has worked as composer and sound designer for Quantum Theatre through a Heinz Endowments’ Creative Heights grant and has been awarded five Interdisciplinary Arts fellowships from the PA Council on the Arts. She has produced all nine of the group’s recordings, one of which was Squonk’s major label debut for Capitol Records. Jackie studied composition and music theory at the University of Pittsburgh (B.A.) and Washington University in St. Louis (M.A.), earning several academic and performance awards.
