Katy Abbott

Katy Abbott’s composing practice sits firmly in the world of accessible and engaging music. Writing mostly for chamber, vocal and orchestral acoustic settings, Abbott leads the listener through a narrative of sound, exploring concepts of home, place and human nature, frequently exhibiting a cheeky humour. A highly awarded, published and recorded Australian composer, Abbott cleverly juxtaposes contemporary flavours of traditional settings… Katy also teaches composition at University of Melbourne where she is an Honorary Fellow.
