1985 -


Zosha Di Castri was born in Calgary, Alberta in 1985, and grew up further north in St. Albert. She is an established composer-performer who earned her bachelor’s degree in Music from McGill University in Montréal, focusing on piano performance and composition, before obtaining a Doctor of Musical Arts degree from Columbia University in New York City. Since then, her work has been performed in Canada, the United States, South America, and Asia. Her compositions extend beyond purely concert music, however, including projects with electronics, sound arts, and collaborations with video and dance. In 2012, she received the Jules Léger Prize for New Chamber Music for her work Cortège. More recently, she completed a year-long fellowship at the inaugural Institute for Ideas and Imagination in Paris and now resides in New York City, where she serves as the Francis Goelet Assistant Professor of Music at Columbia.
