GABRIELLA SMITH is a composer from the San Francisco Bay Area whose upcoming performances included those by the Bang on a Can All-Stars, Aizuri Quartet, ZOFO, Latitude49, and Gabriel Cabezas and the New York Youth Symphony. Her music has been performed throughout the U.S. and internationally by eighth blackbird, the Cabrillo Festival Orchestra conducted by Marin Alsop, and PRISM Quartet, among others. She is the recipient of the 2014 ASCAP Leo Kaplan Award, three ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards, and a Theodore Presser Foundation Award, and won the American Modern Ensemble Ninth Annual Composition Competition.
