* participating in Hear Her Song initiative

Joshua Cerdenia is an internationally performed composer of orchestral, chamber, and vocal music currently based in New York City. His work covers a wide range of styles and expressive terrain, from "graceful melancholy" (Star Tribune), to works that unfold "like the nascent radiance of a rising sun" (The Straits Times), as well as music that "pretty much explodes at the end" (The New York Times). An alumnus of The Juilliard School, he has worked with a growing number of ensembles of repute, such as the Minnesota Orchestra, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, and the Juilliard Orchestra, among others. When not composing, he works as Artistic Coordinator for The Canales Project. For more information, please visit
