Now at Copland House

In residence through early January, Composer-pianist Keane Southard believes deeply in the power of music to change how people think, feel, and act, and to be a catalyst for positive change in the world. His works reflect his many diverse musical tastes, from medieval chant to 70s rock, Bach to the Blues, and 19th century romanticism to Latin dance forms. He has received many awards, including the Yale Glee Club’s Emerging Composers Competition and Capital Hearings Young Composers Competition, been a fellow at the Intimacy of Creativity (Hong Kong) and Vermont’s Bennington Chamber Music Conference, and spent a year in Brazil as a Fulbright scholar studying music education. He is a graduate of the University of Colorado-Boulder, and is currently a Doctoral candidate at the Eastman School of Music.
