Ann Stimson made her professional debut at age eighteen as a member of the Debut Orchestra in Los Angeles; subsequently she has performed with various ensembles and also as a soloist throughout the US and Europe. Although she performs both traditional and contemporary repertoire, she has long been an advocate for new music. Her work explores the extension of traditional instruments and modes of performance into new, imaginative realms of action and interaction. Most recently, she performed concerts for the New York Philharmonic Biennial, The University of Music and the Performing Arts (Vienna), the Anton Bruckner Conservatory (Linz), the Birmingham Royal Conservatoire (England), the MTI institute for Sonic Creativity (England), the Abrons Art Center (New York), and the National Sawdust (Brooklyn). She holds a Master of Music in flute from the University of Southern California, and a PhD in music theory from The University of California-Santa Barbara. She has received performance/research grants from the Esperia Foundation and the Interdisciplinary Humanities Center for research at the Getty Center, and in Florence and Paris.
Stimson currently teaches music theory at The Ohio State University. She has also served on the faculties of Kenyon College, UCSB, and Westmont College. Her work can be heard on the CD/Digital Download release of the Sonic Arts Ensemble’s Into the Multiverse (Ravello Records).
