Logan V. (b. 1997) is an award-winning composer, pianist, conductor, and multi-instrumentalist from New York City. He received his Bachelor’s in Music from the Mannes School of Music, studying composition with Dr. Lowell Liebermann, one of America’s foremost composers. He now studies composition, music history, and piano performance at the Masters level with Dr. Mark J. Stambaugh at Manhattan School of Music. He is well-versed in electronic music-making as well, having taught classes on notation softwares like Sibelius, Dorico, and Musecore, and digital audio workstations like Ableton Live and Reaper. He attended the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts High School, where he would later serve the orchestra department as a guest conductor and teaching artist. He was awarded 2nd prize at the 10th International Antonín Dvořák Composition Competition for his pieces “6 Variations on ‘Šlo Dzjevča’” for violin and piano, and his “Double Concerto ‘By Vltava’” for two solo clarinets in Bb and strings. He composed both pieces during the five day speed-composing competition in Prague, Czech Republic. That same year, his “Piano Concerto” won both the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer’s Award and the Bohuslav Martinu Prize in Composition.

As a performer, Logan is a classically trained concert pianist and conductor. He has performed in venues in the United States and Europe, his favorite venues include the DiMenna Center, Carnegie Hall, Lobkowicz Palace, and Zadar’s Church of St. Donatus. He is a part of many small ensembles, and enjoys performing chamber music new and old while striving to incorporate improvisation and modern sensibilities wherever possible. His repertoire is varied and genre-inclusive by rule, as Logan is a musician that finds his greatest fulfilment by exploring all the different kinds of music the present day has to offer.
