Named as one of Canada's ‘hot 30 classical musicians under 30’ by CBC, award-winning composer and vocalist Katerina Gimon is rapidly gaining repute as one of the most distinct emerging voices in Canadian choral and vocal composition. With music described as “memorizing”, "fiercely energetic", and "staggering in its beauty and originality", Katerina’s compositions have been performed and commissioned by ensembles across Canada, the United States (most notably at Carnegie Hall), and Europe. Her music has earned several prestigious honours including a 2016 SOCAN Young Composers award, the 2014 IAWM Ellen Taaffe Zwilich prize, as well as selection to the ISCM Canadian Section for World Music Days 2018 in Beijing. As a vocalist, Katerina performs as part of experimental mixed-media ensemble Chroma, of which she is a founding member (vocals, extended vocals, and electronics). She is also the founding director of all-female creative vocal ensemble Audax, which performs primarily new and improvised music exploring the connection between sound, movement and theatre. Though she spent most of her life in Southern Ontario, Katerina is now based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
