Aleksandra Vrebalov (1970) is a Serbian composer based in New York City. She studied composition with Miroslav Statkic at Novi Sad University, then with Zoran Erić at Belgrade University, Elinor Armer at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, and Ivana Loudova at the Prague Academy of Music. She obtained her Doctor of Musical Arts degree from the University of Michigan where she studied with Evan Chambers and Michael Daugherty. Her early string quartet Pannonia Boundless, evoking eastern European sonorities, has been recorded by the Kronos Quartet on their album Kronos Caravan (1999). In her more developed orchestral work Orbits (2002), Vrebalov uses overlapping densities of sonorities and rhythmic proportions such as the Fibonacci series to portray her idiosyncratic post- modern conception of musica universalis. Her music for the ballet The Widow’s Broom (2004) is performed each Halloween by the Festival Ballet Providence. She has also received commissions from the Ad Libitum Ensemble, Merkin Concert Hall Zoom Series, and the Jancic Fund.
