Noam Lemish

Pianist and composer, Noam Lemish (b.1982), began his classical and jazz studies in Israel. Later, he studied under the tutelage of W.A. Mathieu while completing his BA (Summa Cum Laude) in music at Sonoma State University in California, where he studied with Mel Graves, Will Johnson, and Marilyn Thompson. While completing his master’s degree in composition at the University of Toronto, he served as 2011-2012 Composer-In-Residence for “gamUT” – the University of Toronto Contemporary Music Ensemble. At present, Lemish is continuing his studies at the University of Toronto as a doctoral student in Jazz Performance-Piano. In July 2013, Lemish and master drummer George Marsh released Nightfall, their second album of original compositions and improvisations. Their first album together, Yes And came out in fall of 2008. Recently completed recording projects to be released in 2014 include a trio recording with George Marsh and Jim Kerwin and duo project with improviser/composer Will Johnson.
