Composer
About

A major force in 21st century concert music, Victoria Bond leads a dual career as composer and conductor. Her compositions have been praised by the New York Times as "powerful, stylistically varied and technically demanding," and her conducting has been called “impassioned” by the Wall Street Journal and “full of energy and fervor” by the New York Times.

Victoria Bond's new groundbreaking opera, Mrs. President, tells the true story of  Victoria Woodhull, who, in 1872, was the first female candidate to run for the US presidency. Anchorage Opera presented the premiere of the newly orchestrated score of Mrs. President in October, 2012.

"In the annals of sheer strangeness, few musical works inhabit as rare a zone as does “Le Testament de Villon,” an opera—sic—by Ezra Pound, who is far better known as one of the most iconoclastic poets of the twentieth century. It has never been performed in New York before, but it will be part of a trio of “offbeat operas” presented on Monday by the Cutting Edge Concerts series at Symphony Space."

"Bond’s work examined the eternal private-versus-public-persona conflict that raged within [Thomas Jefferson]. It was exquisitely expressed in the music."
