Alexandra du Bois (Ph.D. Stony Brook University; M.M. The Juilliard School; B.M. Indiana University Jacobs School of Music) has been performed in concert halls across five continents. Described as “an intense, luminous American composer,” (Los Angeles Times) and “a painter who knows exactly where her picture will be hung” (New York Times), du Bois writes orchestral, choral, chamber, vocal, and multi-discipline works often propelled by issues of indifference and inequality throughout the United States and the world. Her music has been released on Harmonia Mundi, Kronos Quartet and Perspectives Recordings labels.
