Now at Copland House

Lansing McLoskey’s first experiences at writing music were not exercises in counterpoint, but as the guitarist/songwriter for punk bands in the 1980s. It was through the visceral world of punk that he first developed a love for classical music (that's another story). He spent 20+ years performing medieval & Renaissance vocal music, and vocal/choral works remain central to his work. Zealot Canticles: An oratorio for tolerance won a 2019 GRAMMY, and […]Qumran Psa[lms…] was the Winner of the 2016 American Prize. Much of his work also addresses political & social justice issues. McLoskey’s music has been performed in 21 countries on six continents, and released on 14 CDs. He has won three-dozen national & international awards, including two from the American Academy of Arts & Letters, and was a 2019 Bogliasco Foundation Fellow. McLoskey has been commissioned by the Fromm Foundation, Barlow Endowment, NEA, Copland House, Meet The Composer, Pew Charitable Trusts, New Spectrum Foundation, the International Joint Wind Quintet Project, and numerous ensembles in the States and Europe. He recently completed an opera for Guerilla Opera, and a large work for mezzo & sinfonietta for the 100th anniversary of Joyce’s Ulysses for Network for New Music. Professor at the Frost School of Music, McLoskey is an avid surfer and cyclist.
