Jocelyn Morlock


JUNO Award-nominated composer Jocelyn Morlock's music is hailed as ""airy but rhythmic, tuneful but complex"" with "uncanny yet toothsome beauty" (Alex Varty, Georgia Straight.) “A lyrical wonder, exquisite writing” with “an acute feeling for sonority” (David Gordon Duke,
Vancouver Sun), her music is recorded on 21 CDs including newly-released Halcyon, and Cobalt, whose title track won the 2015 WCMA for Classical Composition. Morlock’s music has received accolades including Top 10 at the 2002 International Rostrum of
Composers, winner of the 2003 CMC Prairie Region Emerging Composers competition, five nominations and one win for Classical Composition/Recording of the Year at the WCMAs, and a
JUNO Nomination for Classical Composition of the Year. She won the 2016 Mayor's Arts Award for Music in Vancouver. Morlock has been Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's Composer-inResidence;
since 2014, following her term as Composer-in-Residence for Music on Main.

​Much of Jocelyn’s music is inspired by birds, insomnia, or a peculiar combination thereof.
