Joan Tower (b. 1938) is a Grammy-winning contemporary American composer, concert pianist, and conductor. Her early work is rooted in the serialist tradition, reflective of her mentors at Columbia University. Her later works are more colorful and have been described as impressionistic. Tower is known for her orchestral music, and her chamber music, though she has also written solo music. One of her most famous works is the six-part Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, inspired by Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man.
