Christine Donkin

Christine Donkin was born into a musically active family in northwest Alberta. Her approach to music composition is influenced in part by the wide range of styles and forms to which she was introduced in childhood: folk, fiddle, jazz, classical, romantic, and much more.

Christine studied music composition at the University of Alberta and University of British Columbia and now composes choral, chamber, and orchestral works which are performed across the continent and beyond, including such prestigious locations as Carnegie Hall, the Moscow Conservatory, and the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Mumbai. She has won awards at national and international composition competitions, and seven companies publish her music.

Christine is active in the field of music education as a teacher, adjudicator, clinician, and arranger. Several of her pedagogical compositions, along with over seventy arrangements and figured bass realizations, appear in the Royal Conservatory of Music publications for piano, voice, violin, viola, cello, clarinet, saxophone, and trumpet. The repertoire books of Trinity College London and the Australian Music Examinations Board also feature her music.

   The sounds of a rainstorm come to life in a musical description that is creative and captivating. Christine Donkin uses nonsense syllables first aleatorically then into a charming melody that grows with the storm then subides. Pavane is very proud to release this Winner of the Cincinnati Children's Choir 2011 Composition Competition. Great for children's choirs and treble choirs of all ages.
