Biography

Anna Pidgorna (b. 1985) is a Ukrainian-born, Canadian-raised composer and media artist who combines sound, visual arts, writing and carpentry to create works that are dramatic and picturesque. Her music has been performed throughout Canada, as well as in Italy, Austria, Germany, Uruguay and United States. Anna's fascination with Ukrainian folk singing took her on a journey through Ukrainian villages in the fall of 2012 and 2013, with generous funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. These experiences have resulted in numerous instrumental pieces and have inspired her to learn this particular singing style herself. Her part-time work on a heritage house renovation in Vancouver led to the creation of Through closed doors, a violin duo inscribed on a restored antique door, which was premiered by the Thin Edge New Music Collective in Toronto in September 2014. Anna is a recipient of two SOCAN Foundation Emerging Composers' awards and has taken part in composition workshops at Carnegie Hall with Kaija Saariaho, Ottawa's National Arts Centre with Gary Kulesha and Chen Yi, and Toronto's Soundstreams with R. Murray Schafer and Juliet Palmer. Her Light-play through curtain holes represented Canada at the ISCM World New Music Days 2013 festival in Vienna. Anna holds an MMus from the University of Calgary, where she studied with David Eagle, and a BA from Mount Allison University. She is currently pursuing doctoral studies at Princeton University.
