BIO

Noah Agruss is a Los Angeles based composer who studied composition at Berklee College of Music in Boston and was mentored by Pulitzer Prize composer Wayne Peterson at San Francisco State University. 

Agruss co-founded San Francisco's new composer consortium, New Release Alliance, presenting modern chamber music concerts. His edgy string quartet arrangements for Vitamin Records of Los Angeles, have garnered millions of hits on YouTube and been chosen by choreographer Mia Michaels for her work on So You Think You Can Dance. In 2014, Agruss was chosen as the first composer commissioned by Los Angeles Ballet to write original music for a premiere work: Cypher, by choreographer Christopher Stowell,

As Composer and Music Director, Agruss has produced original music and songs for more than 20 live theatre productions for Buck and Tim Busfield’s regional B Street Theatre in Sacramento, including numerous children’s musicals. 

Two rolling world premieres of Idris Goodwin’s Bars and Measures, sponsored by the National New Play Network, featured original music by Agruss, the first, at B Street Theatre (Director, Jenny Koons). The second premiere, at Boston Court Theatre in Pasadena (Director, Weyni Mengesha), garnered a nomination for Noah from the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle for Best Original score, and two wins from the 2017 Stage Raw Los Angeles Awards: Best Original Music and Best Music Direction. 

Noah’s Film and Television credits include the Lionsgate feature Five Fingers, starring Laurence Fishburne, NBC’s broadcast of the Beijing Olympics, commercial spots including, Blue Sheild/Blue Cross, Sonic, Pearle Vision and Busch Beer and numerous documentaries for the History Channel.
