Ellen Fishman an accomplished composer creating experiences that engage audiences through live music, video, and interactive technologies. Her string quartet, Lark Dances was recently performed and recorded by the Fairmount String Quartet and released on all streaming platforms. Her interactive opera, Marie Begins, was developed with the support of the Opera America Discovery Grant for Female Composers supported by the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation. This groundbreaking work exists both online, featuring Grammy nominee Lauren Worsham, and in a live version. She developed an app as part of this experience so the audience collectively navigate the non-linear storyline. Marie Begins was premiered by the Opera Theater program at Westminster Choir College of Rider University in November 2020. Ellen studied music composition at San Francisco State University, University of California, Berkeley, the Peabody Conservatory, and at the Conservatoire Americain de Fontainebleau.
