Missy Mazzoli was recently deemed "one of the more consistently inventive, surprising composers now working in New York" by the New York Times, and "Brooklyn's post-millenial Mozart" by Time Out New York. Her music has been performed all over the world by the Kronos Quartet, eighth blackbird, the Minnesota Orchestra, the South Carolina Philharmonic, NOW Ensemble and many others.
Upcoming projects include a performance by the American Composers Orchestra, and performances of her chamber opera, Song from the Uproar, at Bard College and on the New York City Opera's VOX series. She is the recipient of three ASCAP Young Composer Awards, a Fulbright Grant, and grants from the Jerome Foundation and the Barlow Endowment.
In 2006, Missy taught beginning composition at Yale University, and is now Executive Director of the MATA Festival in New York City. She often performs with Victoire, an "all-star, all-female quintet" (Time Out New York) she founded in 2008 dedicated exclusively to her own compositions.
