Lisa Ann Marsh is a founding member of Crazy Jane Composers, the women composers of Cascadia Composers in Portland, Oregon. Her solo piano and chamber works are frequently performed in the Portland area. Her music is inspired by the beauty of the natural world, the complexity of human emotions and relationships, and the artists she collaborates with.

Her chamber works include trios and quartets for winds, strings, percussion, and piano. Currently she is working on a symphonic poem and an opera in collaboration with director Matt Zrebski. Scenes from this opera were premiered at Iowa State University in 2013.

Ms. Marsh is pianist with the Marsh-Titterington Piano Duo and former Principal Keyboard with the Columbia Symphony Orchestra. She is a member of the piano faculty at Portland State University where she also directs the wellness program for musicians.


Lisa Ann Marsh is an important new voice in the lineup of Oregon composers. As the author of works ranging from operatic scores to chamber and solo works, her music displays command of a musical language full of imagination, luscious sounds, and colors. Harold Gray
