Anne LeBaron

A Los Angeles-based experimentalist who is an innovative performer on the harp as well as a composer embracing unusual challenges, Anne LeBaron’s compositions have been performed around the globe. Venues in Italy, Mexico, Sydney, Vienna, Sweden, Kazakhstan, New York, Los Angeles, Italy, and elsewhere have programmed her works for chamber ensemble, orchestra, opera, and chorus, and presented her as a performer. She has received major awards, such as the Alpert Award in the Arts, a Fromm Foundation commission, a Guggenheim, a Fulbright, and NEA grants. Her operas celebrate legendary female figures, including Marie Laveau in Crescent City. She is currently completing LSD: Huxley’s Last Trip, an opera that includes many of the instruments built by Harry Partch. Her newest opera, This Lingering Life, is being composed to a libretto by Mark Campbell and Chiori Miyagawa, and explores the notion of karma. Later this year on the Innova label, her two-CD recording, “Unearthly Delights,” featuring chamber and solo compositions, will be available. She just completed two years serving as Chair of the Board for the American Composers Forum. LeBaron teaches music composition at the California Institute of the Arts.
