Sally Lamb McCune
Sally Lamb McCune (b. 1966, Detroit, Mich.) is an American composer and educator.
Dr. McCune was educated at the University of Toronto and California Institute of the Arts, and earned her MFA and DMA at Cornell University (1998). A dedicated teacher, Lamb McCune has taught at Cornell University, Syracuse University, and currently serves on the faculty at Ithaca College. She has served as guest composer at Eastman School of Music, University of South Carolina, Pepperdine University, University of Pittsburgh, Bradford, and in regional public schools in Syracuse and Ithaca.
Her music has been described as “contemporary, edgy, descriptive, and extremely soulful,” and she has become an important voice in the rising generation of American composers. Her works, which range from solo and chamber pieces to music for chorus, wind ensemble and orchestra, are convincing and evocative, often blending the traditional with the avant-garde.
