Linda Dallimore is an emerging composer hailing from Auckland, New Zealand. Her works explore texture, colour, and often draw inspiration from the environment and related social issues such as climate change.
Linda's music has been performed by ensembles and orchestras including the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, the Rhode Island Philharmonic, and the Aspen Contemporary Ensemble. As an award-winning composer, Linda has participated in festivals in Europe and the US, including the Aspen Music Festival, SICPP at the New England Conservatory (USA), Etchings Festival (France), UPBEAT (Croatia), and VIPA (Spain).
Linda is currently completing a Master of Musical Arts in composition at Yale School of Music, studying with Martin Bresnick. An alumna of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Linda studied composition with Jonathan Bailey Holland and Marti Epstein, and flute performance with Mia Olson, Matt Marvuglio and Fernando Brandão. She holds a Master of Music with first class honours completed under the supervision of Eve de Castro-Robinson, and Bachelor degrees in Arts and Commerce from the University of Auckland, New Zealand. Linda has also enjoyed a corporate career in delivering products and projects, adjacent to her passion for music. She is a member of the Composers Association of New Zealand and represented by APRA AMCOS.
Linda views music, as with all art, as a form of social commentary and projection of ideas and emotions that cannot be easily expressed in words. Her music strives to evoke and conjure emotion, tell a story, provoke thought, and contribute to the social fabric of society.
