All sounds and subjects are grist for Anne LeBaron's restlessly creative compositional mill, which can manufacture anything from a blues opera and a music theater work about the last frog on earth, to ingenious choral works and a rousing fanfare commissioned and performed by Leonard Slatkin and the National Symphony Orchestra. Prior to joining the University of Pittsburgh Music Department in 1996, LeBaron was based in Washington, D.C., where she was one of six composers selected to participate in the inaugural round of "New Residencies" sponsored by Meet the Composer.
Her numerous awards and prizes include a Guggenheim Fellowship and the 1996 - 97 CalArts / Alpert Award in the Arts. A virtuoso harpist and improvisor, LeBaron is famous for her extended techniques and electronic enhancements of the instrument.
