Artist bios:

Originally from Tennessee, Brendan White enjoys the diverse life of a pianist in Los Angeles, where he combines his love of the traditional classical piano repertoire with an avid interest in genre-bending modern and experimental music. White studied with Alice Jackson in Tennessee before attending the Eastman School of Music to study with Thomas Schumacher and then University of Southern California with Kevin Fitz-Gerald, where he was awarded Outstanding Master’s Graduate of the Thornton School of Music. He has performed as soloist with the Jackson Symphony Orchestra, Eastman’s Musica Nova, and the Delta Symphony Orchestra. As a devoted performer of new music, he has worked with notable composers and conductors including Thomas Adès, Donald Crockett, Alan Pierson, Steven Stucky and Jeffrey Milarsky. White is a member of the Mühlfeld Clarinet Trio, winners of the Beverly Hills Auditions, which performs traditional chamber music alongside brand new works for clarinet, cello and piano. He collaborates regularly with the immersive theater group the Speakeasy Society, whose shows often feature largely improvised music that evolves with the narrative. In addition to playing piano, White can occasionally be spotted as a secret organist, percussionist, or tenor.
