Anne LeBaron

CountryUnited States of America
Date of birth30 May 1953

Widely recognized for her work in instrumental, electronic, and performance realms, Anne LeBaron’s compositions have been described in the Washington Post as possessing “uncommon imagination and technical skill.” Embracing an extraordinary array of subjects, ranging from contemporary adaptations of Greek and South American myths, to probes into physical and cultural forms of extinction, to the legendary Pope Joan, her works have earned numerous awards and prizes, such as a Guggenheim Foundation Fellowship, a Fromm Foundation Commission, and the CalArts / Alpert Award in the Arts. As a Fulbright Scholar to Germany in 1980 - 81, LeBaron studied with György Ligeti, later completing her doctorate in composition at Columbia University. Her compositions have been written for virtually every contemporary genre and performed and broadcast throughout the U.S. and elsewhere, including Stuttgart, London, Prague, Talloires, Hong Kong, Sydney, Berlin, Havana, Kyoto, Singapore, Dresden, and Austria.
