Paola Prestini is an “enterprising composer and impresario” and a “human resources alchemist” (The New York Times). As Artist in Residence for 2023-2024, the Montclair community is in for a treat as she aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration among the departments, engage teachers and students in the creative process, explore the craft and discuss the current state of the field, and create an outward-facing collaborative work that engages with the community.
“New York retains a remarkable cadre of composers…but chief among these is the singular figure of Paola Prestini.”
