 Joan Szymko

Joan Szymko, pronounced SHIM-koh, (b. 1957), in addition to being an active composer, has directed choirs in the Pacific Northwest for over twenty-five years. Abundant lyricism, rhythmic intensity and vigorous attention to text are hallmarks of her diverse and distinctive choral writing. Especially noteworthy is Szymko’s significant contribution to the body of literature for women’s voices.

“Szymko... continue[s] to provide opportunities for women’s choruses to stretch beyond the ordinary and the expected to the refreshing and powerful.” [CJ] With nearly sixty octavos in print, her music is sung by distinguished choral ensembles across the country and abroad, including performances at international competitions and festivals (IFCM), and at four consecutive national conferences of the American Choral Directors Association. The ACDA selected Szymko as the composer of the 2010 Raymond W. Brock Commission.
