Athena Loredo is a composer based in Vancouver. She grew up in Newfoundland and obtained a BMus (Hons) in composition from Memorial University. Currently, Loredo is completing a Master’s in Composition at the University of British Columbia. Her compositional style is influenced by the manipulation of musical fragments.
