Recipient of the 2011 St Botolph Club Foundation Emerging Artist Award, Livia Lin recently received an Honorable Mention in the 2011 International Music Prize for her work Ju, written for Boston Modern Orchestra Project (BMOP) principal oboist Jennifer Slowik. In 2006, with just one year of composition experience under her belt, her woodwind trio received an Honorable Mention in the MTNA Young Artist Composition Competition. Her music has since then been receiving critical acclaims in festivals including the Festival of Women in Arts in New York and the Asian Music Festival in Tokyo.
A talented pianist since a young age, she appeared in the commercially released educational video of world-renowned pianist Liu Shih Kun at just age eight. After attaining LRSM in Piano Performance in 2001, Lin went on to study Music Production & Engineering and Film Scoring at Berklee College of Music in Boston, earning a B.Mus. magna cum laude. She also holds a M.A. in Composition from Tufts University.
For years, Lin has been an active audio engineer. While in Boston, she had participated in production projects of BMOP, Bang On A Can bassist Robert Black, to name a few. She was also the sound engineer of Cambridge Community Chorus and King’s Chapel Choir. Find out more at livialin.weebly.com.
