Chris Sivak (b. June 14th, 1982) is a talented multi–instrumentalist and composer residing in Vancouver, BC. His output covers a wide variety of ground ranging from the soberly serious to the seriously absurd; all lush and lasciviousness, hunting for the perfect musical moment, to manic chamber opera featuring casts of characters out to tickle your funny bone.
Chris is currently the composer in residence with the Laudate Singers Of North Vancouver and has been since 2014.
Chris has been commissioned to write music for the Vancouver Chamber Choir,Red Shift Music Society, The Vancouver Peace Choir, The Amicus Duo, The Nu:BC Collective, and OperaFeHk.
He’s also had the opportunity to collaborate musically with The Vancouver Symphony, musica intima, Elektra Women’s Choir, and the Phoenix Chamber Choir.
Chris is also a freelance writer whose words are often found in the pages of Vancouver’s local papers and maintains a blog at http://www.chrissivak.com where he dissects music in his own quirky way. Chris holds a Bachelor’s Of Music in composition from UBC, loves to cycle, dance, and wear silly socks.
