Mary Montgomery Koppel

With music described by the Boston Globe as “hypnotic…haunting and hopeful,” Mary Montgomery Koppel is a sought-after composer in a variety of genres. Her music is richly complex, intricate, and refined, while both aurally accessible and challenging. Dr. MK was a founding member and composer-in-residence of the highly-acclaimed Lorelei Ensemble, through whom she contributed eight new works to the repertoire for women’s voices. Her home church is First Church in Wenham (UCC), where she sings and composes for worship regularly. She recently made her Symphony Hall debut with MIT Orchestra’s performance of Kaleidoscope. Dr. MK teaches at Gordon College and Boston University.
