NGCS PR Stephanie Lubkowski
A resident of Cambridge, MA, Stefanie Lubkowski studied flute, organ, and piano as a child before moving on to a ten-year love affair with the classical guitar. Her initial compositional efforts involved developing unusual timbres on her mother’s Wurlitzer organ and independent study in her high school electronic music studio. These early explorations nurtured Stefanie’s interest in creating sound worlds guided by harmony, punctuated by melody, and inspired by poetry and prose. She went on to study Music and Technology and Guitar Performance at Connecticut College in New London, CT, and received her masters from New England Conservatory where her primary teachers were Lee Hyla and Pozzi Escot.
Stefanie has written for orchestra, voice, various chamber ensembles, and electronic media. She has been commissioned by Auros Group for New Music, Ashleigh Gordon, Anthology, the New Gallery Concert Series, Alea III, and The Fourth Wall Ensemble. She received her doctorate in composition from Boston University in 2014, where her teachers included Ketty Nez and Sam Headrick. Stefanie currently teaches at Brown University.
