Du Yun

Miller Theatre at Columbia University


The 2017 recipient of the Pulitzer Prize in Music for her opera Angel’s Bone, Du Yun is a multifaceted artist—composer, multi-instrumentalist, performance artist, and curator. Her music is adventurous and daring; it embraces orchestral, theatrical, pop music, storytelling, cabaret, and visual arts influences, and reflects her social activism. She avidly collaborates with International Contemporary Ensemble, of which she was a founding member, for an evening of recent works.
