Tawnie Olson

born: 19 November 1974

The music of Canadian composer Tawnie Olson draws inspiration from politics, spirituality, the natural world and the musicians for whom she composes. She is the winner of the 2018 Barlow Prize and the 2015 Iron Composer Competition, and has received commissions from the Canadian Art Song Project, Third Practice for New Music USA, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Women’s Philharmonic and Mount Holyoke College, the Blue Water Chamber Orchestra, the Women Composers Festival of Hartford, the Robert Baker Commissioning Fund of the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, and the American Composers Forum. Olson’s music is performed on five continents; it can also be heard on recordings by Parthenia (with bass-baritone Dashon Burton), the Canadian Chamber Choir, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum, the Chronos Vocal Ensemble, bassoonist Rachael Elliott, soprano Magali Simard-Galdès, oboist Catherine Lee, and Shawn Mativetsky, professor of tabla and percussion at McGill University. Her scores are available from the Canadian Music Centre, Galaxy Music, Hal Leonard’s BandQuest and Mark Foster series, and E C Schirmer.
