25 year old American composer Stephanie Ann Boyd endeavors to write music that brings whimsical worlds to life, that is meaningful to audience and performer alike, and that refreshes and strengthens the creative spirit. Stephanie’s 2015/2016 season included commissions for a new set of lullabies for tenor Rafael Helbig-Kostka, a cello concerto for Alan Toda-Ambaras, and a co-commission involving 50 violinists across America. Other recent highlights involved co-directing the Tuesday Night New Music concert series, winning New England Conservatory's Donald Martino Prize for Excellence in Composition, being chosen as the NEC/Boston Modern Orchestra Project Competition winner, and having her violin concerto premiered in Jordan Hall by recent Michael Hill International Competition prize-winner Eunae Koh under the baton of Australian conductor Nathan Aspinall. An advocate of the innate creativity in young people, she has brought composition programs to schools and music festivals in three countries. Boyd is a frequent lecturer on entrepreneurship and creativity at universities, colleges, and high schools, and she maintains a studio of international composition students, with studio recitals being held twice a year in Ann Arbor, Michigan, and New York City.

"The deftly scored music flows in gentle waves, and at any one moment it glistens with smears of string harmonies, velvety flute sonorities, gentle whiffs of clarinet melody, and the round, rosy tone of the brass" - Boston Classical Review
