Claire Chase is a musician, interdisciplinary artist, and educator. Passionately dedicated to the creation of new ecosystems for the music of our time, Chase has given the world premieres of hundreds of new works by a new generation of artists. She was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship in 2012, and in 2017 was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. She is the Debs Creative Chair at Carnegie Hall for the 2022–23 season, where she is curating concerts, organizing interactive educational events, and presenting multiple new commissions.

Under Chase’s artistic and executive leadership from 2001 to 2016, the ensemble premiered more than one thousand new works on five continents, and developed an artist-driven organizational model that earned the group the American Music Center’s Trailblazer Award in 2010 and Musical America Worldwide’s Ensemble of the Year Award in 2014.
