JUNO award-winning composer Jordan Nobles is known for creating music filled with an “unearthly beauty” (Mondomagazine) that makes listeners want to “close (their) eyes and transcend into a cloud of music” (Discorder Magazine).
He has won numerous awards for his work including a 2017 JUNO Award and a 2017 Western Canadian Music Award for ‘Classical Composition of the Year’, the International Composition Competition of the Unbound Flute Festival (Brisbane, Australia July 2016), the Sacra/Profana (San Diego 2013), Vancouver Bach Choir (Vancouver 2008), and Polyphonos (Seattle 2011) International Composition Competitions.
In 2017, Jordan was the recipient of SOCAN’s Jan V. Matejcek Award in recognition of ‘overall success in New Classical Music’ and was awarded the Barbara Pentland Award of Excellence ‘for his extraordinary contribution to Canadian Music’.
