Composer Kristin Kuster “writes commandingly for the orchestra,” and her music “has an invitingly tart edge” (The New York Times). Ms. Kuster’s colorfully enthralling compositions take inspiration from architectural space, the weather, and mythology. American Composers Orchestra commissioned and premiered Ms. Kuster’s “lush and visceral” Myrrha for voices and orchestra in Carnegie Hall in May 2006. Recent premieres include “Midnight Mirror” with the Left Coast Chamber Ensemble, “Little Trees” with the UM percussion ensemble, and “Perpetual Afternoon,” commissioned by the National Flute Association for the 2010 Young Artists Competition.

Ms. Kuster’s music has received many awards she has been commissioned by many ensembles and grant making organizations. . Born in 1973, Ms. Kuster grew up in Boulder, Colorado. She earned her Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Michigan, where she now serves as Assistant Professor of Composition.
