Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti

Former Curator, Music

An experienced curator as well as a highly accomplished violist, composer, scholar, and educator, Lanzilotti began her tenure at EMPAC starting in Spring 2019 and as of April, 2021 is the Director of Community Engagement at Hawai’i Contemporary. During her tenure she developed music residencies and commissions as well as performances and events in continuation of EMPAC’s artistic directions and with her own perspectives.

Anne Leilehua Lanzilotti has performed as a violist with many of the world’s leading new music ensembles, including the International Contemporary Ensemble, Ensemble Signal, Yarn/Wire, and Alarm Will Sound, as well as popular performers such as Björk, Joan Osborne, Devotchka, and She & Him. As a composer, Lanzilotti has been commissioned to create new works for the Noguchi Museum, the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, and the Borderlands Ensemble. A scholar of contemporary and experimental music, she has taught and written on the subject of “extended techniques” for classical musicians, penned program notes for the London Symphony Orchestra, and published in journals such as Music and Literature.
