Dr. Keith Allegretti
Dr. Keith Allegretti Currently serves as Adjunct Faculty in Music at Austin Community College, where he teaches Applied Composition and Sight Singing. He also maintains an active studio of private piano and composition students in the great Austin area through Timbral Music Studios.
Born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, 1989, Keith is a composer and pianist who enjoys working comfortably in many genres, including chamber, orchestral, opera, and electronic music. Recognitions include Really Spicy Opera’s Quarantine Opera Scenes Initiative, Latitude 49’s Bagatelle’s project, second place in the American Prize in Composition, and finalist in the ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. His opera Good Country, a chamber Western based on a libretto by Cecelia Raker, received its workshop performance at the University of Texas thanks to a grant from UT’s College of Fine Arts Diversity Committee. It has since been produced in Austin by Local Opera Local Artists (LOLA).
While most of his time is devoted to musical pursuits, Keith is also a painter, bicyclist, and chess player. Magnus Carlsen might not be impressed with his moves, but he welcomes challenges any time.
