Bekah Simms

JUNO and Gaudeamus Award-nominated composer Bekah Simms is a St. John’s-born, Glasgow-based musician and lecturer whose lauded works revel in musical extremes, described variously as “enthralling and unique… a melange of intricacies, colorful, yet frightening, grotesque, yet intriguing” (A Closer Listen) and “visceral contemporary music that enfolds external inspirations with dazzling rigor and logic” (Bandcamp Daily.) In addition to performances across North America and Europe by ensembles such as the Toronto Symphony; Vancouver Symphony; Riot Ensemble; Eighth Blackbird; Continuum; Standing Wave; l’Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal; New European Ensemble; and Duo Concertante, she is currently artist-in-residence with renowned Irish ensemble Crash.
