Pianist, producer, and composer
Angelica Olstad is a composer and founder of Pop Up Yoga NYC, a company that takes yoga into urban spaces. As a health and fitness events producer, inspired by her work with juvenile detention centers, she has launched yoga programs across festivals, and in partnership with galleries and hotels.
As a musician, Angelica has developed a unique compositional technique that deconstructs small passages from classical music excerpts to create a live remix performance. Projects include the performance group Feelfeel, using dance mixed media to present classical music in new ways and a co-produced album with Emmy-winning composer Chris Child of Kodomo.
She holds a B.M. in piano performance from University of Northern Colorado and an M.M. in piano pedagogy from University of Illinois (Champaign-Urbana). She resides in Brooklyn, New York.
