Anna Pidgorna (b. 1985) is a Ukrainian-Canadian composer, artist and vocalist who combines sound, visual arts, writing and carpentry in her work. Anna works extensively with Ukrainian folk singing, incorporating elements of this style in instrumental music and performing as a pseudo-folk vocalist herself. Her recent visual projects have included a score inscribed on an antique door and a set of linoleum prints based on her mini-opera Mirror, mirror. Anna is a recipient of two SOCAN Foundation Emerging Composers’ Awards and represented Canada at the ISCM World New Music Days 2013 festival in Vienna. She is pursuing a PhD at Princeton University.
