Manuel Sosa (BM ’91, MM ’94, DMA ’02, composition) is a Venezuelan/American composer who resides in Brooklyn. He received early training on the violin at the José Ángel Lamas Superior Conservatory in Caracas while also pursuing his interest in architecture and drawing, both of which still inform his approach to writing music. At 16, seeking to expand his studies in composition, he moved to the U.S. Latin American culture and pacing as well as volumetric space and color continue to be essential to his vision as are his North American experiences.
