Chicago Symphony Extends Contract for its Composer-in-Residence

American composer Missy Mazzoli will continue her collaboration with the orchestra through June of 2021

After being appointed by Music Director Riccardo Muti in 2018, Mazzoli curated several programs that have featured commissions of works by underrepresented composers in the industry.

“This extension of my residency with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra will allow me to finally present some of the newly commissioned works and world premieres scheduled for recent seasons.” she said.

“This year has brought innumerable unexpected challenges, but I remain committed to the composers I have programmed and to the musicians of the orchestra and am thrilled to have this opportunity to bring to life events that have long been in the works.”

Mazzoli is also the co-founder of Luna Lab — a mentorship program for young female composers, in partnership with New York City’s Kaufman Music Center.
