Canadian composer Alondra Vega-Zaldivar was born in Cuba and
is currently living in Toronto, Canada.
Her music draws inspiration from everything that surrounds her and
aims to reflect her curious and humoristic take on the world: from the
stars that shimmer up above to the constant singing of cicadas, but
also her yearning for peace in humankind.
More recently she has discovered a passion for the natural world and
looks forward to inspiring people to look closer at the beauty that is
found in the most unlikely places on Earth.
Alondra obtained her BMus in Theory and Composition as well as her MMus in Composition from The University of Western Ontario, where she studied with Canadian composers: David Myska, Paul Frehner, Peter Paul Koprowski and Omar Daniel.
This year Alondra was a finalist for the Costello Composition Prize organized by the Lyra Society organization and her piece Peace… for flute, viola and harp will be published by Fatrock Ink Music Publisher this coming fall.
