Biography

Jeffrey Lependorf (b.1962, Philadelphia) is a composer of operas and other works, and also a certified master of the shakuhachi, a traditional Japanese bamboo flute. His music has been performed around the globe — literally, in fact: a recording of his Night Pond for solo shakuhachi was launched into space when the shuttle Atlantis took off on May 15, 1997 and remained for a year aboard the Russian space station Mir. Additionally, he’s the Director of the International Musicians Residency at the Omi International Arts Center, and serves as the shared Executive Director of two national non-profit organizations for independent literary publishing: Community of Literary Magazines & Presses, and Small Press Distribution.
