Kicking off spring here at Copland House is renowned composer Sofía Rocha. Her emotionally intense music explores cognition, randomness, rhythm, and counterpoint within post-tonal frameworks. Winner of the Aspen Music Festival’s Hermitage Prize this year, her upcoming projects include newly commissioned works for the International Contemporary Ensemble in collaboration with the New World Symphony, Emory University Symphony, and New York Youth Symphony (in its First Music commissioning program). She has also received honors from the New England Philharmonic, Earplay, Fresh Inc Festival, American Composers Orchestra Earshot program, and ASCAP, among others. A graduate of the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory and Sunderman Conservatory of Music at Gettysburg College, she is also an avid trombonist and conductor, having performed with numerous orchestras, wind ensembles, and jazz groups.
