Bethany Brown is a composer and pianist from Arizona. A recent graduate of Arizona State University's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts with concurrent degrees in Music Composition and Filmmaking Practices, Bethany’s works have premiered at the ASU Composition Recitals and at “Opus,” an annual concert presented at the Phoenix Art Museum by ASU’s chapter of the Society of Composers. Her string quartet, “Before the Storm” was published in the 2014-2015 edition of ASU's Lux Undergraduate Creative Review. Bethany was selected as a composition participant for the Talis Festival & Academy in Saas-Fee, Switzerland in July 2015, where her piano quintet and film music were performed. In addition to having works featured on various doctoral solo recitals and her own solo senior recital, Bethany has most recently had music featured on a concert given by pianist Joseph Hauer in New Jersey. An avid collaborator, she worked as the assistant director/videographer for "Of Leto," a musical thesis by colleague Alexander Tom that premiered in November 2015. Bethany recently finished her honors thesis/music capstone piece, "PLACE" for string orchestra, based on the techniques of spectralism. "PLACE" was premiered along with five other works on Bethany's senior recital in April 2016. For the 2016 summer season, Bethany was commissioned to again write the music for the annual Saas-Fee Film Festival and Talis Festival silent film collaboration, and will continue to collaborate with the Saas-Fee Film Festival/Talis Festival in spring 2017 for a special film presentation. Currently, Bethany holds a full-time position as the Manager of Education, Youth and Community Programs for Arizona Musicfest, and was recently appointed the Secretary for ASU's Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts Alumni Board.
