Biography
Ellen Reid

Ellen Reid is one of the most innovative artists of her generation. A composer and sound artist whose breadth of work spans opera, sound design, film scoring, ensemble and choral writing, Ms. Reid recently became the first composer to have works commissioned and premiered by Los Angeles’s four leading musical institutions — the Los Angeles Philharmonic, LA Opera, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Los Angeles Master Chorale — all within one year.

This season Ms. Reid presented her first opera, p r i s m, which opened to universal acclaim in sold-out runs on both the East and West Coasts, as a part of New York’s Prototype Festival and the LA Opera’s Off Grand series. Other season highlights include a work for the Young People’s Chorus of New York City and a collaboration with Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller on a sound installation for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.

In the fall of 2019 Ms. Reid begins a three-year appointment as creative advisor and composer-in-residence for Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, a role which encompasses multiple commissions — including a sound installation and half-evening-length interdisciplinary work for orchestra — and calls for her creative input on the orchestra’s artistic trajectory.

Ellen Reid was listed as one of Musical America’s 30 Professionals of the Year in 2016 for her work with Luna Composition Lab, a mentorship program for young self-identified female, non-binary, and gender non-conforming composers that she co-founded with composer Missy Mazzoli. Ms. Reid received her BFA from Columbia University and her MA from California Institute of the Arts. She splits her time between her two favorite cities: Los Angeles and New York.
