Q&A | 15 Questions For Composer Bekah Simms (video edition)

By Ludwig Van on March 14, 2019

You don’t need to look far to find composers in Canada propelling classical music into a promising future. One of the brightest lights shining the way is Newfoundland-born, now Toronto-based composer Bekah Simms. Her work “Granitic” is nominated for the 2019 JUNO Award for Classical Composition of the Year. In 2016 the CBC included her among their annual 30 hot classical musicians under 30. Besides composition, she’s also the co-artistic director of Caution Tape Sound Collective which presents concerts of forward-thinking repertoire since 2015. This is a composer you keep your eye on.

 

 

You can hear her latest work, “Foreverdark” performed by the Esprit Orchestra at New Wave Reprise at Trinity St. Paul’s Centre on Friday, April 5, 2019, at 7 pm.
