The artwork that you see displayed tonight was created in collaboration with University of Cincinnati College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP) students and was led by faculty member Edward-Victor Sánchez. The art was inspired by the music and programmatic text of David Maslanka's A Child's Garden of Dreams and highlights the highly evocative music.

A portrait of Catherine Likhuta

Catherine Likhuta

Catherine Likhuta is a Ukrainian-Australian composer, pianist and recording artist. Her music exhibits high emotional charge, programmatic nature, rhythmic complexity and Ukrainian folk elements. Catherine’s pieces have been played extensively around the world, including highly prestigious venues such as Carnegie Hall (Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage), Glyndebourne Opera House (Organ Room), five International Horn Symposiums and two World Saxophone Congresses, as well as many festivals and conferences. Her works have enjoyed performances by prominent symphony orchestras (such as Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Orchestra of the National Radio of Ukraine), chamber ensembles (such as Atlantic Brass Quintet, Ensemble Q, ICE, Lyrebird Brass, NU CORNO, and U.S. Army Field Band Horns) and soloists (including former presidents of the North American Saxophone Alliance Griffin Campbell and the International Horn Society Andrew Pelletier). Catherine has held residencies at Tyalgum Music Festival, North Carolina NewMusic Initiative, University of Missouri Kansas City, University of Georgia, and other institutions.


She is a two-time winner of the International Horn Society Composition Contest (virtuoso division) and a recipient of several awards, including two grants from the Australia Council for the Arts. Her music can be heard on Albany, Cala, Common Tone, Equilibrium and Summit Records. Horn virtuosa Denise Tryon’s album Hope Springs Eternal featuring Catherine’s piece Vivid Dreams was awarded the 2022 American Prize in Instrumental Performance.


Catherine’s wind band works have been played by dozens of wind ensembles, including prominent groups such as Dallas Winds, Sydney Conservatorium Wind Symphony, University of Georgia Hodgson Wind Ensemble, and University of Kentucky Wind Symphony. Her music has enjoyed performances at Australian School Band and Orchestra Festival (Sydney), Australian National Band and Orchestra Conference (Perth), CBDNA Conference (Norman, OK), and Midwest Clinic (Chicago, IL).


Catherine holds a bachelor's degree in jazz piano from Kyiv Glière Music College, a five-year post-graduate degree in composition from the National Music Academy of Ukraine (Kyiv Conservatory), and a Ph.D. in composition from the University of Queensland. She is an active performer, often playing her own music. She was the soloist on the premiere and the CD recording of ut Loud, her piano concerto commissioned by the Cornell University Wind Ensemble, and the pianist on Adam Unsworth’s CD Snapshots.
