Scott Lindroth

Scott Lindroth has been on the music faculty at Duke since 1990. His music has been performed world-wide by major orchestras and chamber ensembles, including the Chicago Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Seattle Symphony, the Netherlands Wind Ensemble, the Marine Band, and dozens of soloists who teach and study at the finest conservatories in the United States, Europe, and Japan. Lindroth has received fellowships and awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, the Revson Foundation, the Koussevitzky Foundation, the American Academy in Rome, the Howard Foundation, the Aaron Copland Foundation, the American Academy and Institute of Arts and Letters, among others. In 1984 he was privileged to be a resident composer with the New York Philharmonic, a relationship that culminated in the performance of his first orchestral work, A Fire's Bright Song, in 1987. Since then he has gone on to compose more music for orchestra, wind ensemble, string quartet, mixed chamber ensembles, voice, and electronic media. His installation SoundSpace has been running continuously at the NC Museum of Life and Science since 2007, and recent works explore sonification as the basis for musical composition. At Duke, Lindroth teaches courses on composition related topics, and, since 2007, has served as Duke's first Vice Provost for the Arts.
