company manager

Landon Wilson is a pianist, arts administrator, and creative producer living in New York City. He is the Company Manager of AMOC* (American Modern Opera Company) and currently studies at Manhattan School of Music as an undergraduate President’s Award recipient. His teachers include Tatiana Tessman and Jeffrey Cohen, with Reiko Füting, Yu-Chun Chien, and Anthony de Mare as close mentors.

With AMOC*, Landon has worked to create discipline-colliding performances at venues such as The Cathedral of St. John the Divine, The 92nd Street Y, Tina Kim Gallery, La MaMa ETC, and Baryshnikov Arts Center. He has produced programs at The Clark Art Institute and an Up Close collaboration between AMOC* and Ensemble Connect at Carnegie Hall, featuring the quiescent, evocative work of Wandelweiser Collective composers. In June 2023, Landon returned to the Ojai Festival in California as the Rothenberg Production Fellow.

The 2023/2024 season brings several premieres of Landon’s independent work. Highlights include THE RASA PROJECT at National Sawdust, an immersive, multisensory experience combining A.I. (GAN), neuroscience, visual art, and climate research; and Eusebius and Florestan, alone together, a solo program featuring the New York premiere of Anthony Cheung’s homonymous work, and études, sonatas, and miniatures by Unsuk Chin, W.A. Mozart, György Ligeti, György/Márta Kurtág, and Robert Schumann, collectively drawing inspiration from the “fearless” and “unabashedly frank, yet playful” body of work by photographer Wolfgang Tillmans.

Landon studied at the Mozarteum Internationale Sommerakademie (Salzburg) and has participated in master classes with Robert Levin and Christopher Hinterhuber. He previously attended Kansas Wesleyan University’s Pre-College Music Division from 2014-2019. There, as a prizewinner of the Kansas International Music Festival Concerto Competition, he appeared several times with the KWU Philharmonic Orchestra, performing the concerti of Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn, and Shostakovich with Jesse Henkensiefken conducting.

Residing at International House New York, Landon received the Thea Petscheck Iervolino Foundation Award for his commitment to enriching the community’s artistic and queer life.
