Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti is a composer, performer, scholar, and educator. As a composer, last season included a premiere of her piece birth, death (for obsidian sound sculptures, strings, and voice) at The Noguchi Museum, and Periapsis Music and Dance's first Emerging Artist Residency for Choreographers & Composers where she developed a new work with choreographer Wendell Gray II. This coming season includes a recording project of Lanzilotti’s own works at The Tank Center for Sonic Arts, a collaboration with Nina Young, and a commission by The Noguchi Museum for a new work for fixed media, flute/voice, viola, and harp. An active performer, Lanzilotti has been a guest artist with Alarm Will Sound, Ensemble Échappé, and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). Lanzilotti is the Assistant Professor of Viola at University of Northern Colorado School of Music where she also runs the Contemporary Music Ensemble and is Co-Director of Open Space Festival of New Music. As a scholar, Lanzilotti specializes in the music of Andrew Norman: her dissertation is an analysis of Norman’s The Companion Guide to Rome, showing the influence of architecture and visual art on the work. As an extension of that research, she created Shaken Not Stuttered. Lanzilotti has also published articles in Music & Literature and Neue Zeitschrift für Musik. A native of Hawai‘i, she is a co-founder and Artistic Consultant for Kalikolehua — El Sistema Hawai‘i, a free orchestra program for underserved youth.
