Libby Larsen’s wide-ranging compositions include everything from intimate chamber music to grandiose orchestral pieces and operas. Larsen is an outspoken exponent of women in music; her works frequently investigate feminine perspectives through depictions of female historical figures and fictional characters. Larsen was the first female resident composer with a major orchestra and has held residencies at several major orchestras and conservatories. She is a prominent advocate for composers and co-founded the Minnesota Composers Forum, now the American Composers Forum. Among Larsen’s many awards are a GRAMMY® Award, NEA fellowship, and George Peabody Medal.
