Leah Sproul Pulatie (b. 1986) is a composer, songwriter and performer. The Kansas City Star recently described her music as able to "carry itself with confidence and to spark a sense that concert music might have a future after all." Leah has studied with composers Edward Knight, Steve Rouse, Krzystof Wolek, James Mobberley, Chen Yi, and Pulitzer Prize recipient Zhou Long. In April 2011 her work To Catch a Beast, an operatic song for orchestra and soprano, was read by the Kansas City Symphony. In 2012, she was awarded an Inspiration Grant by the Kansas City Arts Council to produce her opera for young audiences, How the Camel Got His Hump. Leah holds a DMA (ABD) in composition from the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory. She has taught theory and composition at Interlochen Center for the Arts, UMKC's Summer Composition Workshop, and currently teaches at Avila University.
