Additional Info: A native of Boston, Patricia Leonard’s early musical training began with piano studies, followed by composition studies at The New England Conservatory. She received a B.M. in Composition from The Boston Conservatory. In 1998, she went to New York to study composition with Pulitzer Prize-winning composer David Del Tredici. Ms. Leonard’s music is performed frequently in the U.S. and in Europe, and her music has been premiered by acclaimed ensembles and artists such as the New York Piano Quintet, featuring members of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra; Broadway singer Timothy Shew; Grammy Award-winning clarinetist Eddie Daniels and renowned contemporary music pianist Christopher Oldfather. In recent news, her completed song cycle “My Dearest Friend – The Letters of John and Abigail Adams” for orchestra, soprano and baritone will feature Metropolitan Opera soprano Wendy Bryn Harmer as Abigail. Her piano trio Strangely Close, Yet Distant is featured on a special Mahler Anniversary CD released in September 2012. Ms. Leonard's compositions have been reviewed as “arresting and evocative with innovative harmonies” by New York Concert Review; the New Music Connoisseur reviewed her musical style as “revealing musical sophistication and a high level of craftsmanship” and “wildly imaginative and vivid storytelling with virtuosic variety.” Ms. Leonard is a founding member of New York Composers Circle and shared the group’s inaugural concert in May 2003 with guest composer, David Del Tredici. She is also a Board member of The League of Composers/ISCM. Also an opera judge, Ms. Leonard panels the annual Violetta DuPont, Gerda Lissner and The Licia Albanese - Puccini vocal competitions for aspiring young opera singers.
