Biography

The Émile Nelligan Foundation awarded Ana Sokolović the prestigious Serge-Garant Prize in November 2015. “By transposing her own roots and personal identity into a vibrant and universal culture, Ana Sokolović composes music that connects us not only to Montréal, but to Toronto, Aix-en-Provence, and Belgrade.”— Réjean Beaucage, Jury President. The Société de musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ) recently marked the 20th anniversary of Ana Sokolović’s arrival in Quebec with a celebration of her body of work. The society’s artistic committee unanimously decided to devote the third edition of its Série Hommage tribute performance series to her. The series, held over the 2011-12 season, attracted record participation, with more than 200 events were presented in her honour from coast to coast. In 2017, Ana Sokolović was awarded by the Juno for the Best Classical Composition of the Year and she recently received a prestigious commission from the Canadian Opera Company for a main-stage opera that will be premiered during the 2019/20 season. In 2018, two of her works are presented at the Espace GO in Montréal: Les Marguerite (s), by Stéphanie Jasmin and Marguerite Porete, directed by Denis Marleau and Stéphanie Jasmin, in February; Svabda, an a cappella chamber opera, in March.
