Who is Beata Moon?

Beata Moon is a classical pianist and composer, raised in Indiana, making her debut at age 8 with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. She trained as a pianist at the Juilliard School with Adele Marcus, and self-taught as a composer. She released two CDs of chamber music on BiBimBop Records, Perigee & Apogee and Earthshine. In 2007, Naxos Records added a CD of her works for solo piano, performed by Moon herself, to their catalog of important 21st-century composers. Her work has been acclaimed by Kyle Gann, Gramophone, Allmusic, and others.

Moon has frequently collaborated with choreographer Henning Rübsam and his company SENSEDANCE. "After Yet Another Fall", "Dolphins and Antelopes", "Moonpaths", "Dinner is West" and "Tenancy" are among her commissions for the company. Rübsam choreographed to other works by Moon, including her "In Transit" from 1999 which was used for the choreographer's "Amaranthine Road".

She is of Korean-American descent.

She also has gained notability for performing a series of "Whodunit?" concerts at such venues as the Kennedy Center, in which the program notes are not provided until the end of the concert.
