Ola Gjeilo
Ola Gjeilo (pronounced Yay-lo) was born in Norway in 1978, and moved to New York in 2001 to begin his composition
studies at the Juilliard School, from which he graduated with a Masters Degree in 06, after two years at the Royal
College of Music in London. Olaspublished concert works are performed all over the world, and his debut recording
as a pianist-composer, the lyrical crossover album Stone Rose, was released to critical acclaim in 2007 on the 2L
label. He especially enjoys writing music for choir, orchestra/symphonic winds, and the piano, while as a pianist, his
main passion is improvisation, either solo or over his own ensemble works.

Presently a full-time composer based in New York City, Ola is also very interested in film, and his style draws much
inspiration from movies and cinematic music. Olas choral and band scores are distributed by Hal Leonard, and Stone
Rose is available at amazon.com and iTunes. For more information, please visit www.olagjeilo.com
