Looking Ahead: Anna Clyne is in residence with the Baltimore Symphony for the 2015–16 season. The orchestra opens its subscription series with the composer's Masquerade in September. Also in September, Clyne's new work for amplified ensemble and pre-recorded audio, Just As They Are, will receive its world premiere by the Grand Valley State University New Music Ensemble, and her new violin concerto, The Seamstress, will receive its US East Coast premiere by the Princeton Symphony Orchestra, featuring soloist Jennifer Koh.

"[Anna Clyne is] an artist who writes from the heart, who defies categorization, and who reaches across all barriers and boundaries. Her compositions are meant to be played by skilled musicians and can reach different audiences, no matter what their background."
—Riccardo Muti
