Biography

Bekah Simms (b. 1990) is a Toronto-based composer from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Her music deals largely with small shifts of colour and ruminations on timbre, with many works influenced by both visual and literary arts. Among her compositional interests is the interaction of acoustic instruments and the human voice, be it through singing, sounding, or somewhere in between. Her music has been featured from coast to coast in both Canada and the United States, as well as venues in Europe.

Recent awards include the 2014 Canadian University Music Society Student Composition Competition Prize, second prize in the Zvi Zeitlin Memorial International Composer's Competition, one of three winners in New Fangled Opera’s Call for Scores, one of three composers selected for the 2015 North American New Opera Workshop, a 2015 Newfoundland Arts and Letters Award, and first prize in the Costello Competition.
