New York-based Joelle Wallach composes music for orchestra, chamber
ensembles, solo voices and choruses. Her String Quartet 1995 was the
American Composers Alliance nominee for the 1997 Pulitzer Prize in Music.
The New York Philharmonic Ensembles premiered her octet, From the Forest
of Chimneys, written to celebrate their 10th anniversary; and the New
York Choral Society commissioned her secular oratorio, Toward a Time of
Renewal, for 200 voices and orchestra to commemorate their 35th Anniversary
Season in Carnegie Hall.
Wallach's early training in piano, voice, theory, bassoon and
violin included study at the Juilliard Preparatory Division. In 1984
the Manhattan School of Music, where she studied with John Corigliano,
granted her its first doctorate in composition. Read her The Dream of
