Katy Jarzebowski is a Composer, Sundance Fellow and 

lifelong cinephile who scores music for film, concert, and multimedia.

Combining old world influences with new world sounds, Katy's work balances a strong background in string and orchestral writing with intimate elements of sound design, electronics, and folk music. 

Her credits include the Jon Stewart-produced film 'After Spring,' which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival and aired on the STARZ network, as well as the upcoming documentary 'Nothing is Truer Than Truth,' featuring Oscar-winner Mark Rylance. She recently completed scoring the feature film 'Love Thy Keepers,' starring James D'Arcy and Addison Timlin, coming out later this year. 

Katy's music appears in the short film 'Krista,' premiering at SXSW in 2018, and her collaboration with actress-filmmaker Clea DuVall for the Sundance TV-commissioned featurette 'Taste' screened at Sundance in 2017. The Hollywood Reporter regarded her work in 'Aram, Aram,' citing "The score by Katy Jarzebowski gives the film an electric charge." Additionally, her commercial work includes the recent Nike EQUALITY campaign featuring Lebron James.

In 2014, Katy was a composer fellow at the Sundance Music and Sound Design Lab at Skywalker Ranch under top industry composers James Newton Howard, Alan Silvestri and Harry Gregson-Williams, and was named one of ASCAP's 'Top Composers To Watch.' 

Katy graduated from Yale University and recently completed her Masters in Music at NYU.  Her acknowledgements include the Elmer Bernstein Award, ASCAP Film Scoring Fellowship for Study Abroad, Sorel Scholarship for Women in Film Scoring, and Kosciuszko Foundation Fellowship for Graduate Studies. In 2017, Katy co-authored a chapter in 'Contemporary Film Music' (Palgrave-Macmillan) with her Sundance mentor, Peter Golub. She has studied abroad in Paris with Martin Matalon (IRCAM) and won a fellowship to research the work of Nino Rota and Ennio Morricone in Italy. 

Katy is forever grateful to her parents for being unapologetically militant cinephiles and her grandparents for sharing their love of music.
