Now at Copland House

Benjamin Krause, who will be in residence through most of February, has been recognized through grants, commissions, and awards by the Houston Symphony, Network for New Music, Presser Foundation, ASCAP, Da Camera of Houston, and France’s American Conservatory in Fontainebleau. Drawing freely from varied traditions and aesthetics, his music is characterized by its visceral rhythmic drive, motivic control, and colorful, dense harmonies reminiscent of jazz. He has had residencies and fellowships at the Oregon Bach Festival Composers’ Symposium, Lutheran Summer Music, Bennington Chamber Music Conference, and Wyoming’s Brush Creek Foundation for the Arts. As a pianist, he regularly performs new music, jazz, and the classical repertoire at Carnegie Hall, the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, and Menil Collection, among others. A graduate of Rice University and the University of Oregon, he taught at Valparaiso University.
