As one of the country’s youngest emerging multimedia artists, Gracie Fagan (she/her) experiments with human perception to comment on the intersectionality of identity and pop culture. Gracie combines audio, projection, performance art, theatre, and dance to create immersive performances and environments not typically found in the traditional concert hall setting.
Her pieces continue to be selected for showcase in national conferences, including the SHE Festival for Women in Music, Electronic Music Midwest Festival, the International Women Composer’s Festival of Hartford, the Eugene Difficult New Music Ensemble, and completing a residency with the Walden school. She has received multiple grants to further her work, including the Ida M. Vreeland Award, the Vada Kinmann Oldfield grant for academic and artistic advocacy of minorities, the John Phillips Sousa Band Award, and the 2018 Nebraska Young Artist award.
Gracie is currently teaching composition and music technology at the University of Colorado at Boulder while pursuing her Master of Music degree and received her Bachelor of Music Composition degree from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln in 2023.
