Natsumi Osborn (b.1999) is a Japanese-American composer from Tokyo, Japan. Finding her interest in composition at the age of six, she has since written for film and ballet as well as concert music, ranging from solo and chamber works to large-ensemble compositions. In the summer of 2016, Natsumi's first work for brass, "Searching the Subconscious", was performed at Carnegie Mellon University. The previous year, she produced an original ballet "Before My Eyes" with choreographer Riley Horton, which was premiered at the Houston Ballet Center for Dance by the Houston Ballet Academy. "Reminiscence", the chamber accompanying the dance, was streamed multiple times throughout 2015 and 2016 on Houston Public Media Classical radio. Natsumiís works have also been performed several times by students of the Village High School, including the premiere of "Saudade" (2015) by the string orchestra. Natsumiís "Veiled Expanse" will be performed at the Society of Composers, Inc. Region VI conference in Dallas, TX next month. She is a recipient of the Meritas Composition Contest Gold (2016) and Silver (2015, 2014) awards and an Honorable Mention from the 2016 American Composer's Forum NextNotes competition. She currently studies under Mr. Daniel Knaggs from Rice University. She has previously studied under Dr. Benjamin Krause, visiting assistant professor of music at Valparaiso University, and Dr. Mark Fromm, composition professor in the Carnegie Mellon University Pre-College Program.
