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.
Joelle Wallach is currently composing Runes and Ritual, a
