Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) is an Italian composer. She served as chair of music composition at Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang, China, and is currently adjunct professor of music composition at the Department of Arts and Music of ESE, Florence, Italy.
Educated at the Conservatory in Milan, she has composed in many genres, developing a personal language that is concerned with the blend of past and present. Her compositions have been performed in venues such as Westminster Choir College, New York University, Steinway Haus in Hamburg and München, National Center for Performing Arts in Beijing, Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, St. Gallen Cathedral, Basilica della salute in Venezia, St.George’s Hanover Square in London, Manhattan Central Synagogue in NYC, Oliwa Cathedral in Gdansk, Basilica di Santa Croce in Firenze, and other relevant theaters and churches.
A lecture-recital on her music has happened in May 2017 at Harvard University, organised by the Boston Chapter of the American Guild of Organists during WIMfest (Women in Music Festival).
Carlotta Ferrari won the 2nd prize at 2013 edition of Sisì-Frezza competition for women composers held by IFBPW (International Federation of Business and Professional Women). She received the auspices of the President of Italy in 2008 for the premiere of her secular Cantata dedicated to the victims of terrorism.
