Nell Shaw Cohen, composer

Nell Shaw Cohen (b. 1988) was raised in California and New York. Cohen studies at New England Conservatory in Boston, MA under the tutelage of Michael Gandolfi and John Mallia. Many of her works are fueled by explorations of the intersections between music, visual art, and literature. She has written for chamber ensembles, orchestra, wind ensemble, choir, and solo voice. Cohen premiered 16 chamber works on the NEC Tuesday Night New Music concert series during the 2008-2011 seasons. Before shifting her focus to concert music, Cohen produced an original rock album titled Tempus, which received favorable reviews in the U.S. and abroad. For more information, visit
