Composer Veronika Krausas

Composer Veronika Krausas has had her works performed internationally. The Globe & Mail (Toronto) writes that “her works, whose organic, lyrical sense of storytelling are supported by a rigid formal elegance, give her audiences a sense that nature’s frozen objects are springing to life.” Mark Swed of the Los Angeles Times said of her chamber opera “Something novel this way comes.”  SFCA commissioned Krausas’ language of the birds for its major collaboration with The Alexander String Quartet  in 2010-11, and is delighted to once again be partnering with her in a new work.  Krausas is an Assistant Professor in the Composition Department and the Assistant Director of Undergraduate Theory at the Thornton School of Music, on the advisory council of Jacaranda Music, an associate artist with The Industry, a lecturer at the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and an artist with Catalysis Projects.
