Now at Copland House

Patrick O'Malley, who will be in residence through November, is a composer of orchestral, chamber, and film music. He is inspired by mysterious dichotomies in nature, society, and art, composing works that often embrace abstract worlds rather than concrete images, as he considers the listener’s imagination as much as every other musical element. His music has been performed across the U.S. and in Europe, and has been recognized and performed by ASCAP, The Hear Now Music Festival, the Albany, Columbus, Milwaukee, Minnesota, and New Jersey Symphonies, and the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s National Composers Intensive. At Copland House, he was a CULTIVATE Emerging Composer Fellow in 2017 and a What’s the Score? Fellow in 2018-19, working on a commission at Viewpoint High School in Calabasas, California. The Sioux City (Iowa) Symphony’s 2018 Composer of the Year, he also serves as the arranger and a conductor for the innovative video-game concert series Journey LIVE with Fifth House Ensemble and composer Austin Wintory. He recently received his doctorate from the University of Southern California, He divides his time between Los Angeles and Lake Charlevoix, Michigan.
