Saint-Boniface (Manitoba, Canada), 1969

Juno-nominated composer Jocelyn Morlock is one of Canada’s most distinctive voices. “A lyrical wonder, exquisite writing” with “an acute feeling for sonority” and an approach that is “deftly idiomatic” (Vancouver Sun), Morlock’s music has received numerous accolades, most recently a Juno Nomination for Classical Composition of the Year (2011, Exaudi.) She is currently (2012-14) serving as inaugural Composer-in-Residence for Vancouver’s innovative concert series, Music on Main. Highlights of the past year’s premieres include Three Meditations on Light, written for the debut concert of the Couloir duo at Music on Main’s Modulus Festival; Luft, a ballet written for Turning Point Ensemble’s Rio Tinto Alcan prize-winning production Firebird 2011; and Aeromancy, a double cello concerto commissioned for the Gala opening concert of the International Cello Festival of Canada.
