About Noah Luna

“The very model of a modern, cool composer,” Noah enjoys a whirlwind career: composing original concert music, writing orchestrations for pop, rock, and hip hop artists, conducting orchestras and for live concerts and recordings, and advocating for young musicians to become more involved in contemporary music. Noah has been Young Artist-in-Residence with the Berkeley Symphony through their “Under Construction Project” (Now: Earshot), editor and arranger for San Francisco Chamber Orchestra’s Incredible Shrinking Orchestra Project arranging massive works for 14 players of the SFCO, and continues to foster relationships with his ever-expanding community’s finest ensembles.

In addition to his work with popular musicians, he is orchestrator for Bollywood films, independent feature films, and two PBS Specials for Ethan Bortnick: “The Power of Music” and “Generations of Music.” Most recently, he composed and conducted orchestrations for a series of live shows for the band Streetlight Manifesto, premiering on Broadway, and is currently touring with the band Hanson, conducting the orchestra for their “String Theory” tour. His Cello Concerto, commissioned by Dartmouth University, will premier in May 2019.
