Alisha Heng

Alisha Heng (age 19) is a clarinetist, composer, and multidisciplinary artist from New York City. Her works have been performed by Ensemble Lemniscate, baritone Christopher Herbert, and violinist Barbora Kolářová. Alisha’s passion for composition stems from both her instrumental study and a fascination to create works that provoke the mind—seeking to explore the relationships between music, art, and literature. She attended the Curtis Young Artist Summer program in the summer of 2020, and is also an avid filmmaker and writer. Alisha currently studies composition at the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins.
