Dr. Ruehr was a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute in 2009 and she teaches in the music department at MIT.

Review:
"With a light touch, Elena Ruehr's music grabs your attention in a 'what's that over there in the distance?' sort of way. Upon a closer look, the music is a careful balance of gorgeous sonorities, descriptive themes, and vibrant rhythm." (Endless Possibilities)

"Ruehr's chamber music is lovely. She crafts her materials with an experienced hand, fully aware that less is more. ...Well worth investigating. Ruehr's voice is as memorable as it is gentle." (Fanfare)
