Strongly influenced by the intellectual and cultural institutions of Australia as a young student, Blyth discovered an active interest in contemporary American music while at Eastman School of Music. As a consequence she now dedicates a large part of her career to commissioning new works both as a soloist and chamber musician. Having premiered over twenty five new compositions, Blyth has worked with composers such as Augusta Read Thomas, Carter Pann, Pat Long, Kevin Putz, Robert Pound, Marc Pollard, Libby Larsen, Joan Tower, Ralf Gawlick, Peter Sculthorpe, Gerald Shapiro, Frederic Rzewski, Stefan Freund and Shulamit Ran. Her performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio, Canadian Broadcasting Commission, Australian Broadcasting Commission National Radio, Icelandic National Radio and the Australian Broadcasting Commission Television Network and she has recently recorded on the Musica Omnia label. Her principal teachers include Stephanie Coleman and John Roberts of the Conservatorium of Western Australia and Barry Snyder of Eastman School of Music. She completed her Master’s degree and Doctorate majoring in Performance and Literature at Eastman where she was also awarded the prestigious Performer’s Certificate. Blyth is currently Professor of Music at Dickinson College, Pennsylvania.
