COPLAND HOUSE is dedicated to nurturing and renewing America’s musical heritage, and to fostering greater public awareness and appreciation of our nation’s composers and their work. Building upon Aaron Copland’s seminal artistic and personal legacies, we further this mission through composer residencies; live, broadcast, and recorded performances; and educational and community outreach programs.

ANNE LEBARON’s music embraces an exotic array of subjects. She recently received one of the Opera Grants for Female Composers, a new initiative from Opera America, and is currently developing LSD: The Opera, an investigation into the pre-psychedelic era ramifications of the popular hallucinogenic drug. Her seven previous operas have focused upon such legendary figures as Pope Joan, Eurydice, Marie Laveau, and the American Housewife. Composer, West Coast experimentalist, and innovative harpist, she has been acclaimed for her work in the instrumental, electronic, and performance realms, and her music has been performed around the globe. She has received a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, the Alpert Award, a Fulbright Grant, two awards from the Rockefeller MAP Fund for her works Sucktion and Crescent City, a Los Angeles Cultural Exchange International Grant, and the 2014 Miriam Gideon Prize for Breathtails. In the past year, her music has been celebrated with three portrait concerts in both New York and Los Angeles, and she is part of UCLA’s CAP Artist Residency Program. Co-chair of the Composition Program at the CalArts School of Music, she holds the Roy E. Disney Family Chair in Musical Composition.
