Carol Ann Cheung

Carol Ann Cheung is a marketing communications professional who specializes in working with new music. In 2016, she joined the team at Boosey & Hawkes, where she works with some of the world’s most renowned composers, including John Adams, Steve Reich, Osvaldo Golijov, Anna Clyne, David T. Little, and Sean Shepherd.

Prior to Boosey & Hawkes, Cheung worked at Carnegie Hall as an editor for six years, where she concentrated on publications and marketing campaigns for the Hall’s experimental and new music programming. Cheung’s passion for working with new music has kept her deeply engaged in numerous creative projects around New York City: She was previously the project manager for Q2 Music’s Peabody Award-winning podcast ‘Meet the Composer’ with Nadia Sirota, and has also written articles for WQXR / Q2 Music. She also produced John Luther Adams’s Soundwalk 9:09, a yearlong project commissioned by MetLiveArts to celebrate the opening of the Met Breuer building in 2016.

Cheung received her degree in piano performance at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music, where she studied with pianist and composer Emile Naoumoff.
