A much sought-after soloist and chamber music collaborator, pianist Koji Attwood received a Bachelor of Music degree from the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied with Seymour Lipkin, and a Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School under Jerome Lowenthal. He recently earned his Doctor of Musical Arts degree at Juilliard, where he continued his studies with Mr. Lowenthal.
Mr. Attwood has worked extensively with the Mark Morris Dance Group, Wally Cardona Quartet, and White Oak Dance Project. After the White Oak Dance Project was disbanded, he was asked to provide music for Mikhail Baryshnikov’s 2002-03 highly acclaimed solo tours of the United States. One such performance was described by the Minneapolis Star-Tribune: “Koji Attwood percolated rapturously… they [Baryshnikov and Attwood] displayed lovely chemistry in a performance full of virtuosity and humor, whimsy and seriousness. Their coordination was so tight that it sometimes seemed as though the dancer’s limbs were attached to the musician’s notes.”
