Kimberly Osberg

Composer and Interdisciplinary Arts Collaborator

As a composer, I have always been fascinated by the process of collaboration - of working intimately with artists from the initial spark of inspiration to the final moments of its presentation. The world could always use more great art. Let's make it together.
