About James Moffett, Composer

I studied Voice Performance and Composition at the University of Toronto, but then some life happened, so I took a 15 year hiatus. After I got a cancer diagnosis, I tried to spend more time on the things that bring me joy, and I rediscovered my love of writing music

I write mostly vocal music. I've written two one act operas; many choral works for ensembles like the Toronto Mendelssohn Youth Choir, Chorus Niagara, Chorus Niagara Children's Choir, Mississauga Festival Choir, and Avanti Chamber Choir; and a number of song cycles including "The Bleach Cycle" (about mental health issues) and "Lavender Fields" (about living with cancer).

I have also written a set of 24 Preludes for piano; and a number of sonatas for solo instruments including Cello, Violin, Viola, Oboe, English Horn, Trumpet, Horn, and Harp.

I regularly write 10 second pieces for orchestra.
