Brooklyn-based composer and performer Camille De Beus’ works range from “choral-like pieces with complicated harmonic structures to more upbeat, jazzy numbers,” and her songs have been praised as “catchy and musically nuanced” by The Argus. She has had work premiered by the Mivos Quartet.
De Beus has performed nationally and internationally--some of note are The Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust (LAMOTH), The Rudolfinum (Prague), The Notre Dame (Paris), and The MuTH (Vienna).
She has premiered and recorded Lisa Lukas’ “To Raise the Windhorse,” and received the honor of being chosen as LAMOTH’s first Musical Ambassador in 2015.
In addition to composing and performing, De Beus has also volunteered for music non-profits, working as a musical coach for The Harmony Project’s orchestra. She has also worked as a private piano teacher. More recently, she has done work in arts administration as the performer Gabriel Garzon-Montano’s personal assistant. In 2019, she completed a digital design course at the School for Visual Arts.
De Beus holds a BA with honors in Music from Wesleyan University, where she studied composition under the direction of Dr. Tyshawn Sorey. She also holds Masters of Music in Composition from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire. Her other principal teachers include Nancy Arnold (piano), Giacomo Gates (jazz vocals), Ronald Ebrecht (organ), and Morgan Gerstmar (viola).
