Lauren Bernofsky

Hailed by Lukas Foss as “a master composer,” Lauren Bernofsky has written over a hundred works, including solo, chamber, and choral music, as well as larger-scale works for orchestra, film, musical, opera, and ballet. With performances spanning the world, her music has been described as "a fantastic balance between the emotional and intellectual; technical and lyrical side of 21st Century composition."

She holds a master's degree in composition from the New England Conservatory and a doctorate in composition from Boston University. She has taught as a professor at the Peabody Institute.

Bernofsky has received numerous grants from institutions including The National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts, The American Music Center, and The American Composers Forum. She has been honored with a Longfellow Chorus Award of Distinction and an Excellence in Composition Award from the Brass Chamber Music Forum. Her compositions have been commissioned by The Del Mar Trio, The Holyoke Civic Symphony, The Litchfield County Children's Choir, The South Shore Conservatory, Sinfonia Calcania of Boston, The Harford Ballet, and Roundabout Opera for Kids.

Her music has been performed across the United States as well as in England, Wales, Canada, Germany, Norway, Iceland, Spain, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, and The Netherlands.

Lauren Bernofsky's music can be heard on the Polarfonia, Emeritus, Music to My Ears, and Albany labels.
