Quebecois composer and organist, Laurence Jobidon has written for a variety of ensembles, notably chamber, solo, vocal and orchestral music. She studied organ with Danny Bélisle and Pamela Gill Eby and composition with Andrew P. MacDonald. Her music has been showcased in North America and Europe in venues such as the SMCQ, the Canadian Opera Company noon-concert series and the 28th International Review of Composers (Serbia). Laurence’s organ compositions have also been featured in articles on new music written by Louis Brouillette and Maja Smilianić Radić in the organ magazines Mixtures (Québec), L’Orgue francophone (France) and Folia Organologica (Poland). Finalist and laureate of many composition prizes (Graham Sommer, New Generation Orchestra, Prix 3 Femmes – Mécénat Musica), her chamber opera “L’hiver attend beaucoup de moi” (on a libretto by Pascale St-Onge) will open this fall at Opéra de Montréal.
