Anica Galindo is an American composer whose compositions have been performed across the country and internationally. Her expressive works are inspired by the beauty of words and imagery, weaving dramatic stories through lyricism.
Educated at Santa Clara University, she graduated with highest honors in 2003, with a double major in Music and Theatre Arts. She then attended the world-renowned Scoring for Motion Pictures and Television program at the University of Southern California, where she was awarded the BMI Film Scoring Scholarship. Her early work includes choral and chamber music, incidental music for theatre, as well as a variety of film projects. A Wintry Vale, commissioned and premiered by the San Jose Chamber Orchestra in 2007, marked her professional debut.
In 2008, For Lambent Isles was premiered by the San Jose Youth Chamber Orchestra and, the following year, was performed for His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. It was later performed by the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Her next project, Trinitas, commissioned in 2008, is a set of three pieces exploring the renewing power of the Trinity, with the final chapter having been premiered on March 5, 2011. That same year, These Feathered Walls, for solo cello and string orchestra, was commissioned and premiered by the San Jose Chamber Orchestra. Her most recent works, With Whispered Words and Through Misty Halls, will be premiered this year.
