Aiyana Tedi Braun Composer, Pianist

Aiyana Tedi Braun (b. 1997) is a pianist and composer of orchestral, chamber, and vocal music.

Aiyana has had several orchestral works performed by orchestras such as the New York Philharmonic at the age of 15, the Curtis Symphony Orchestra, New York Youth Symphony and De Capo Players, and she has worked with members of the New York City Ballet Orchestra, Minnesota Opera Orchestra, as well as others.

Aiyana is currently pursuing a Bachelors degree at the Curtis Institute of Music where she studies under full scholarship as the Edith Evans Braun Fellow. She is currently in the composition studio of Dr. Jennifer Higdon, and during her time at Curtis, she will also study with Dr. Richard Danielpour, and Dr. David Ludwig.

She studied for four years in the Juilliard Pre-College Division in the composition studio of Dr. Manuel Sosa.

She also was a member of the New York Youth Symphony’s Composition Program.

Some of her most recent accolades include a winner of the 2017 BMI Student Composer Awards, featured on the National Public Radio program, "From the Top” in 2016, and winner of the American Composers Forum “NextNotes” Competition, 2015.

Aiyana performed her first original composition at the Marian Anderson Awards in 2008 at eleven years-old, an event honoring Dr. Maya Angelou and Mr. Norman Lear at the Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall. This ceremony also included performances by Ben Vereen, Harry Belafonte, and the Philadelphia Orchestra.
