Described as “radiant and transcendent” by New Classic LA, the music of Juhi Bansal takes its inspiration from a disparate set of elements. As an Indian composer brought up in Hong Kong, her work draws subtly on those traditions, entwining them closely and intricately with the gestures of western classical music. Her work features themes celebrating musical and cultural diversity, nature and the environment, and strong female role models. Recent seasons have included commissions from the Los Angeles Philharmonic Association, Beth Morrison Projects, New York Virtuoso Singers, Heidi Duckler Dance Theatre, the Oakland East Bay Symphony and more. Her work on this season's Secondary In-School Opera is her third project with LA Opera Connects.
