San Francisco-based composer Emma Logan (b. 1990) writes music that is emotionally compelling through the use of gesture, experimentation, and storytelling. Her piece, “Three Sisters”, for flute trio was selected as a finalist in the 2017 ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. Emma’s passion for contemporary music drives her to continue collaborating with fellow composers and performers to bring new music to life.
Upcoming collaborations include a commission by Miolina Duo, curating a concert with Elevate Ensemble, and curating a series of electro-acoustic music called Alone/Not Alone. Past collaborations include commissions by One Great City Duo, Siroko Duo with Helia Music Collective, Ensemble for These Times, and Areon Flutes with the Guerrilla Composers Guild.
Emma is co-founder of the Helia Music Collective, an organization dedicated to promoting women in music. Emma is also a curator for San Francisco’s Center for New Music and will present concerts for the 2017 and 2018 seasons. She is currently the Assistant Operations Manager at the San Francisco Symphony. Emma studied with David Garner at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (MM) and with Andrew Waggoner, Daniel S. Godfrey, and Nicholas Scherzinger at Syracuse University (BM)
