Biography

Bekah Simms is a Toronto-based composer originally from St. John’s, Newfoundland. Her varied output has been heralded as “nuanced and complex” (NOW Magazine) and “redefining classical music” (Ludwig Van). Propelled equally by fascination and terror toward the universe, her work is often filtered through the personal lens of her anxiety. Foremost among her current compositional interests is quotation and the friction between recognizability and complete obfuscation.

Simms' music has been featured across Canada, in over a dozen American states, Italy, and the UK and interpreted by a diverse range of top-tier performers including Esprit Orchestra, Continuum Contemporary Music, the Madawaska Quartet, and the Array Ensemble.
Bekah has been the recipient of over 20 awards and prizes, including the 2017 Toronto Emerging Composer Award and the 2018 Karen Kieser Prize in Canadian Music. In 2016 the CBC included her among their annual 30 hot classical musicians under 30.
