Anthony Cheung at the Cleveland Orchestra

The Cleveland Orchestra, youngest of the "Big Five" American orchestras, has recently announced that PSNY composer Anthony Cheung will hold their 2015-2016 Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellowship. Cheung, who recently moved to the midwest to be an Assistant Professor of Music at the University of Chicago, will not only be composing a new orchestral work for the orchestra—but will also be involved with educational programming throughout northeast Ohio. In addition, the Cleveland Orchestra will perform Cheung's Lyra in early 2016. 

Cheung's work shows a deep commitment to exploring the boundaries of pattern, form, and cohesion in composed music, while remaining intuitive, affective, and profound. Several of his works published by PSNY for ensemble showcase his intricate part-writing for small groups—such as Enjamb, Influse, Implode, and Centripedalocity. We look forward to seeing (and hearing!) how Cheung will use the forces of the Cleveland Orchestra to explore even further.
