Du Yun

Known for her “relentless originality and unflinching social conscience” (The New Yorker), Du Yun works at the intersection of orchestral, opera, chamber music, theater, cabaret, musical theater, oral tradition, public performances, electronics, visual arts, and noise. Her second opera, Angel’s Bone (libretto by Royce Vavrek), won the 2017 Pulitzer Prize for Music. She was named a Guggenheim Fellow (2018) and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Classical Composition (2019). An avid performer and bandleader (Ok Miss), she has appeared in many assorted holes and halls, sites and museums. Her onstage persona has been described by The New York Times as “an indie pop diva with an avant-garde edge.”

Du Yun is currently professor of composition at the Peabody Institute of the Johns Hopkins University and distinguished visiting professor at the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. The New York Philharmonic presented her Tattooed in Snow on its new-music series in 2018.

As a curator, she was a founding member of the International Contemporary Ensemble; served as artistic director of MATA Festival (2014–18); conceived the Pan Asia Sounding Festival (National Sawdust); and founded the FutureTradition Initiative in China, in which she works with folk musicians from around the world to champion more cross-regional collaborations. In 2018 Du Yun was named one of 38 Great Immigrants by the Carnegie Foundation.
