Now at Copland House

Hong Kong-based American composer Matthew Schreibeis; who'll be in residence through mid-August; believes in the power of music to bring people together and seeks to create bold, emotionally-engaging journeys through sound. His works span orchestral, chamber, and vocal music and include collaborations with video artists and a series of works for traditional Korean instruments, and have been performed and recorded internationally by soprano Tony Arnold, the New York New Music Ensemble, Oberlin Contemporary Music Ensemble, Eastman BroadBand, and members of eighth blackbird and Alarm Will Sound, among others. Among his honors are commissions by the Aspen Music Festival and School, Hanson Institute for American Music, Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture; residencies at MacDowell and Yaddo; and a Charles Ives Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a Camargo Foundation Fellowship. He began his musical studies in Pittsburgh and received degrees from the Eastman School of Music (B.M.) and the University of Pennsylvania (Ph.D.). He is currently Assistant Professor at Hong Kong Baptist University, and previously served on the faculties of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, Korea University in Seoul, and the soundSCAPE Festival in Italy.
