Now at Copland House
We're pleased to welcome Michael Gilbertson who quickly went from being one of our CULTIVATE Fellows in 2015 to a Finalists for the 2018 Pulitzer Prize in Music! He is a professor at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, BMI Composer-in-Residence at the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, and a founder and artistic director of ChamberFest Dubuque, a festival that supports music education in his Iowa hometown. A graduate of both Julliard and Yale, his music has been performed by the Minnesota Orchestra, Washington National Opera, Pittsburgh, Albany, and Grand Rapids Symphonies, Musica Sacra, and The Crossing. He has composed numerous concertos and orchestral works, and has collaborated with a wide variety of artists, including choreographers, poets, and playwrights. He'll be in residence here until mid-September.
