In Festive Commemoration Kevork Andonian (1978)
Kevork Andonian’s passion for music creation flourished at an early age; he began writing at the age of six. He completed his Bachelor of Music at Carleton University with Highest Honors in 2001 and was awarded the Carleton University Medal in Music. He holds a Master of Music in Theory and Composition from the University of Ottawa, where he taught as a part-time professor.
A versatile composer, he has composed for the concert hall, theatre, film, video, multimedia and dance productions. Currently he lives in Los Angeles, where he is Resident Composer of the Los Angeles Dream Orchestra and is pursuing postgraduate studies in Music Composition and Film Scoring at the University of California, Los Angeles, where he is also a Teaching Fellow.
Andonian’s works have been performed by Sinfonia Toronto, the Grammy-nominated Lincoln Trio, members of the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Omaha Symphony and Los Angeles Philharmonic. Flutist Marc Grauwels and marimbist Sarah Mouradoglou recorded his “A Longing For Joy” for Naxos – a work originally composed for Sinfonia Toronto and performed on the orchestra’s tour in Spain. He finds fulfillment and joy in collaborating with choreographers, lyricists, filmmakers, producers and other musicians. He is also an accomplished pianist performing many musical genres. He has performed at international festivals in North America and Europe as well as for heads of state including Jean Chrétien, former Prime Minister of Canada.
