Meet the Composer: Leigha Amick

Composer Leigha Amick believes that music has the potential to reflect on both the current and the timeless human experience, to provide grounds for intellectual fascination, and to quench the need for emotional expression.  Her compositions have been performed by ensembles including the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, the Boulder Philharmonic, the Orlando Philharmonic, St. Martin’s Voices, the Indiana University New Music Ensemble, the Playground Ensemble, NOTUS Contemporary Vocal Ensemble, and the Ars Nova Singers.  In 2022, New Voices Opera premiered Rhiannon’s Condemnation: a one-act chamber opera based on a medieval Welsh legend from The Mabinogion for which she wrote both the libretto and the music.  In 2023, she was a composer fellow at the Aspen Music Festival. Amick is currently a graduate student at the Curtis Institute of Music where she holds the Jimmy Brent fellowship.
