Award-winning composer, Stacey Philipps, writes music of close, lush harmonies and contrapuntal textures, exploring the timbre of voices and instruments in minute detail and sweeping gestures. A lifelong choral singer, Stacey is an early- and new-music devotee, and she currently sings with the Oregon Repertory Singers. Her vocal interests extend to a love for composing choral music and art song, as well as collaborating with solo instrumentalists and chamber music ensembles. A sometime pianist and frequent dabbler in playing underappreciated instruments – she has an accordion, mountain dulcimer, and ukulele on hand and is pining for a harpsichord, banjo, and viola da gamba – Stacey holds degrees in music composition from Portland State University and in philosophy and math from St. John’s College, Santa Fe.
Philipps is a member of the American Composers’ Forum, the National Association of Composers, Cascadia Composers, and ASCAP, and she is the proprietor of Sirensong Publishing.
