Christopher Mayo

born: 1980
country: Canada

Christopher Mayo is a composer of ‘poignant’ and ‘persuasive’ music (The Independent), whose ‘attractive and intelligent compositional voice’ (Musicworks Magazine) has brought him recognition not only in his native Canada, but also across Europe and the United States. Mayo’s notable projects have included commissions from Carnegie Hall, the MATA Festival, Ensemble Contemporain de Montreal and Rambert Dance Company and performances by the London Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra, the Nouvel Ensemble Moderne and the London Sinfonietta.

Mayo is the 2012–13 Composer in Residence with the Manchester Camerata for whom he will compose several new works, including a piece for the orchestra’s final concert of the season at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester. Additional future projects include works for Crash Ensemble, Ensemble Amorpha and the English National Ballet.

Born in Toronto in 1980, and currently living in London, UK, Mayo holds a Master’s degree from the Royal College of Music, where he studied with Julian Anderson, and a PhD from the Royal Academy of Music, where he studied with Philip Cashian. Mayo is a winner of a SOCAN Award for Young Composers and the Royal Philharmonic Society Composition Prize.
