About my compositions
Daniel Canosa’s recent orchestral work has been premiered by the ECHO Chamber Orchestra. “City Suite” and “The Other Side” received critical and audience acclaim.
In recent years, he has been commissioned to compose chamber music: “Jabulon Trio” (2021) for Flute, piano and marimba, “Delphine Waltz” (2022) for Flute, clarinet and piano, and “Con Que La Lavare” (2018) for mezzo-soprano and piano, premiered at UC Davis on a program of Latin-American composers.
Canosa was Composer in Residence with the Sonoma Chamber Singers in 2008 and director of the Occidental Chamber Choir.
