Resident producer Lolly Lewis studied voice, composition, and
electronic music at UC Santa Cruz. While still in college, she was
recruited for the faculty of the Aspen Music Festival's
Audio/Recording Institute, and she was Director of Recordings
at San Francisco Conservatory of Music from 1981 - 1993.
In 1984 Lolly coordinated audio playback of her recording of
John Adams' Light Over Water for its premiere performance
in Los Angeles (Museum of Contemporary Art) and New York
(Next Wave Festival, Brooklyn Academy of Music). In 1989 she
toured with the Kronos Quartet providing live playback of the
recorded portion of Steve Reich's Different Trains.
In 1998 she toured with Chanticleer as production and stage manager. Producing projects include the
opera Tania (by composer Anthony Davis and based on the story of Patty Hearst), a premiere recording
of orchestral music by Harlem Renaissance composer Florence Price, and a program of new chamber
music works by composer Mario Davidovsky. She recently recorded all 68 of Haydn's string quartets
with San Francisco's New Esterhazy Quartet in live performance.
As a member of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Lolly sang on numerous recordings including
their 1995 Grammy-winning Brahms Requiem.
