Allen Anderson, composer

A member of the music department’s faculty since 1996, Allen Anderson has composed works for the Raleigh Chamber Music Guild, Speculum Musicae, Ascolta, the Empyrean Ensemble, the UNC Chamber Singers, The Master Singers of Lexington, Aleck Karis, Thomas Warburton, Daniel Stepner, as well as UNC graduates Grace Kennerly and Sara Soltau. His work has been acknowledged with awards or commissions from the Guggenheim, Fromm and Koussevitsky foundations, Chamber Music America, BMI, League of Composers/ISCM (both the National and Boston chapters) and the Institute for Arts and Humanities at UNC. In 2005 he received the Goddard Lieberson Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His music is published by C. F. Peters and APNM, and has been released on three recordings from CRI. Of An Opportunity for Mischief, his 2014 Albany Records release, Fanfare magazine wrote: “thoughtful, literate music that supplies its own logic; it makes an impact and is worth returning to for a point of view that suggests meaningful identities, relationships, and associations.”

Tickets and More Information

The historic heart of the music department in the College of Arts and Sciences, Hill Hall reopened in 2016 after an 18-month, $15-million renovation. Work centered on improvements to Hill Hall’s 430-seat auditorium and rotunda. The performance space was renamed the James and Susan Moeser Auditorium in honor of the former chancellor and his wife, who are organists and teachers at UNC.
