Nico Muhly attended Columbia University and the Juilliard School, where he studied composition under Christopher Rouse and John Corigliano. Before graduating from college, Muhly began working for Philip Glass, conducting and making demos for his film scores. Since then, Muhly's works have been premiered by the Chicago Symphony, the Juilliard Orchestra, the Boston University Tanglewood Institute Orchestra, the Boston Pops, Clare College Choir, New York's Saint Thomas Church Choir, and the Paris Opera, among others, and he has written film scores for Choking Man (2006), Joshua (2007), Margaret (2009) and the Acadamy Award nominated film, The Reader (2008). He is also a skilled performer, arranger, and conductor to such musicians as Björk, Rufus Wainwright and Antony of Antony and the Johnsons. Both of his albums, Speaks Volumes (2007), Mothertongue (2008) and live shows have received high acclaim in the international press. Upcoming commissions include an opera developed by the Metropolitan Opera and the English National Opera and in April 2009 he premiered a dance with choreographer, Stephen Petronio.
