The rhythmically and emotionally-charged music of Schubert Club Composer-in-Residence Reinaldo Moya depicts the multitude of voices and influences present in the whole of the American continent today; it is music that “wends and dances, sways, forgets and remembers” (Classical nowhere). Reinaldo Moya is a graduate of Venezuela’s El Sistema music education system. Through El Sistema, he had access to musical training from an early age and was a founding member of the Simón Bolívar Symphony Orchestra touring throughout Europe, North and South America. A graduate of The Juilliard School and a participant in the prestigious John Duffy Composers Institute and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra Conce Composers Institute, Moya now lives in Northfield, and is Associate Professor of Composition at Augsburg College. Reinaldo Moya is the recipient of the 2015 McKnight Composers Fellowship, the Van Lier Fellowship from Meet the Composer and the Aaron Copland Award from the Copland House.
Additional past artists-in-residence include composer Abbie Betinis, composer Edie Hill, composer David Evan Thomas, pianist Roderick Kettlewell, composer Cung Tien, oboist Stanley King, gamelan musician Joko Sutrisno, and early music ensemble Belladonna.
