Allison Loggins-Hull ’05

Allison Loggins-Hull is a composer, flutist, and producer. She was named the eleventh Daniel R. Lewis Composer Fellow for the Cleveland Orchestra, a three-year fellowship beginning in the 2022-23 season.

Loggins-Hull is well known for her work as part of the duo Flutronix with Nathalie Joachim. Described as “influential creators and socially conscious changemakers,” they are “paving the way from their classical roots to the future of music.” Flutronix recently premiered two projects: Black Being at the Arts Club of Chicago, and Discourse with Carolina Performing Arts.

The critically acclaimed Flutronix was praised by The Wall Street Journal for being able “to redefine the instrument.” Similarly, MTV Iggy recognized Flutronix for “redefining the flute and modernizing its sound by hauling it squarely into the world of popular music.” The duo released two full studio albums (Flutronix and 2.0), a live album (Live From the Attucks Theatre), an EP (City of Breath) and is signed to Village Again Records in Japan.

Recently, compositions by Loggins-Hull have been performed by the LA Phil and San Francisco Symphony and she performed her own work and others’ at Cal Performances in Berkeley. And the New Jersey Symphony premiered Can You See? a new piece for chamber ensemble commissioned by the orchestra and the Newark Museum of Art.

In New York City, the long-awaited premiere of Diametrically Composed was held at Bryant Park. For this collaborative initiative Loggins-Hull brought together fellow composers/mothers Alicia Hall Moran, Sarah Kirkland Snider, and Jessica Meyer to write pieces for Allison, Moran, and pianist, Gabriela Martinez.

Continuing her work in film, Allison composed the score for “Bring Them Back,” a 2019 award-winning documentary about the legendary dancer Maurice Hines directed by Jon Carluccio and executive produced by Debbie Allen.

Loggins-Hull has performed at The Mostly Mozart Festival at Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Orchestra Hall (Chicago), World Cafe Live, and several other major venues and festivals around the world.

She has performed or recorded with a wide range of artists including the International Contemporary Ensemble, Imani Winds, Lizzo, and others.

As a member of The Re-Collective Orchestra, Loggins-Hull was co-principal flutist on the soundtrack to Disney’s 2019 remake of “The Lion King,” working closely with Hans Zimmer. On the small screen, she has been featured in an internationally broadcast ESPN Super Bowl commercial, the 62nd annual GRAMMYs Award Show, and the Black Girls Rock! Awards Show.

Loggins-Hull has composed for Flutronix, Julia Bullock and others and has been commissioned by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Carolina Performing Arts, Alarm Will Sound and The Library of Congress.

She was a co-producer of Nathalie Joachim’s celebrated album “Fanm d’Ayiti,” which was nominated for a 2020 GRAMMY for Best World Music Album. In support of her work, she has been awarded grants from New Music USA, and a fellowship at The Hermitage Artist Retreat in Englewood, Florida.

Allison is on the flute faculty of The John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University. She’s a teaching artist at The Juilliard School’s Global Ventures and is a former faculty member of The Juilliard School’s Music Advancement Program.
