Lauren Bernofsky

Composer Lauren Bernofsky's catalog includes solo, chamber and choral music as well as larger-scale works for orchestra, film, musical, opera, and ballet. Her music has been performed across the United States, Europe, and Asia, as well as in Australia, Iceland, and South Africa.

The artistry of her orchestration grew out of her doctoral studies with master composer Lukas Foss. She holds degrees from the Hartt School, New England Conservatory, and Boston University. Her philosophy of composition is simple: music should be a joy both to play and to hear.

Her music has been heard at Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Rathaus, Tanglewood, the Midwest Clinic, the Stellenbosch International Chamber Music Festival, and the Spanish Brass Alzira Festival. Inspired by the expressive potential of each instrument, her distinctive language speaks both to musical history and the present day.
