Andrea Clearfield

Andrea Clearfield (b. 1960) is an award-winning full-time composer of music for opera, orchestra, chorus, chamber ensemble, dance, and multimedia collaborations. She has been praised by the New York Times for her "graceful tracery and lively, rhythmically vital writing", the Philadelphia Inquirer for her "compositional wizardry" and "mastery with large choral and instrumental forces", the L.A. Times for her "fluid and glistening orchestration" and by Opera News for her "vivid and galvanizing" music of "timeless beauty".
Her works are performed widely in the U.S. and abroad. Among her 135 works are ten cantatas including one for The Philadelphia Orchestra. Her cantata, "Tse Go La" for double chorus, electronics and chamber orchestra incorporates Tibetan melodies that she was documenting in the remote Himalayan region of Lo Monthang, Nepal. She is currently writing an opera on the venerated Tibetan yogi, Milarepa, commissioned by Gene Kaufman and Terry Eder to libretto by Jean-Claude Van Itallie and Lois Walden for NYC premiere. The opera is currently in workshop with American Lyric Theater. Her duo Convergence was recently released on Bridge Records: Convergences: Johannes Brahms & Andrea Clearfield, with Barbara Westphal, viola and Christian Ruvolo, piano. She was a recipient of a 2016 Pew Fellowship, and she also was a winner in the Global Premiere Commissioning Consortium Competition to write a new work for marimba and string quartet, which will be performed nation-wide.
Dr. Clearfield was awarded fellowships at the American Academy in Rome, the Rockefeller Foundation's Bellagio Center, Civitella Ranieri, Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, Wurlitzer Foundation, Montalvo, Ucross, Blue Mountain Center, Djerassi and the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts among others. She was composer in residence at Michigan State and University of Arkansas in 2016. She also has been visiting composer at the University of Chicago, the College of William and Mary, the University of Texas at Austin, Penn State University, The Hartt School of Music and the St. Petersburg Conservatory in Russia and was the featured composer in the 2014 Women Composers Festival of Hartford. She was a 2014 recipient of the Copland House Residency Award. Dr. Clearfield served on the composition faculty at The University of the Arts from 1986-2011. She is in demand as a curator, speaker, music panelist and adjudicator. She received a DMA from Temple University where she holds the distinction of being the first composer in the history of the university to receive the prestigious University-wide Presidential Fellowship and was honored as a Distinguished Alumna. She received an MM from the University of the Arts and a BA from Muhlenberg College where she received the Alumni Achievement in the Arts Award. She is also the founder and host of the renowned Philadelphia Salon concert series now celebrating its 30th year featuring contemporary, classical, jazz, electronic, dance, and world music and winner of Philadelphia Magazine's 2008 "Best of Philadelphia" award.
