Out of nearly 800 contestants of all ages, Guthrie is one of only 31 composers to have his composition (the new Lavelatla commissioned by Eirene Duo) highlighted at FSU’s biennial Festival of New Music. The concerts run from Jan. 30-Feb. 1st at Florida State University!
Ian Guthrie has again been in the spotlight as the most recent composer to be commissioned by the Eirene Duo – a two-piano duo attempting to bridge the gap of American and Chinese music and culture. Find out more information here.
Ian Guthrie has recently been invited to serve as the artist-in-residency for July-August for the Chinquapin Center for the Arts and a residency in late December with Centrum. He will be composing extensive works specifically related to the topic of global climate change.
Now as a part-time instructor, Ian Guthrie has not created as much music this past year as usual. However, summer break is coming, which means a lot is coming, including a work hopefully to be performed at the 2018 FSU Festival of New Music. Pieces include a Viola Sonata, a two-piano duet, a violin-piano duet, and a new electronic piece.
Part of the summer includes Guthrie’s trip to Canada to hear his successful “Dark Forest” performed, as well as participating in the Composers Institute at Roosevelt University. Stay tuned for more!

Ian Guthrie has been studying in Europe for the past several summers. Where is he studying this summer: Vienna – the New York City of Europe.
He has also just received his second ASCAP Plus Award.
During Feb. 4th through the 6th, UNT students will be performing many recent works, including my “Dark Forest,” which was premiered on Nov. 6th by Orion Canter (baritone) and Xinshuang Jin (piano). It will be lived streamed, so stay tuned for updates.
On a similar note, I encourage you to take a listen to my new “Dark Forest.” It is now on my “Works” page.
