About Me

Grace Brigham is a composer, soprano, and

violinist based in Salt Lake City, Utah. Her

work is rapidly gaining attention, with

premieres by Cantus, St. Martin's Voices at

St Martin-in-the-Fields, the Washington

National Cathedral Choir, the Western ACDA

SSAA Honor Choir, ensembles at St. Olaf

College, the Capital Fringe Festival, and more.

Originally from Washington, D.C., she holds

degrees from St. Olaf College and the

European American Musical Alliance. Her

piece "Sundowning" was named a winner of

the HerVoice Emerging Composers

Competition; the Chicago Classical Review

wrote, "Sundowning gently conveys the

distress and confusion of the patient in

graceful, overlapping vocal lines, moving from

disquiet to acceptance and stoic peace in its

brief duration. It is no small praise to say that

Brigham’s affecting work did not pale next to

the music of the masters surrounding it." Additionally, her piece "Discoveries" was named the winner of both the Cantus Young & Emerging Composer Competition and the Cathedral Choral Society Call For Scores. It was described as follows: "Through daring harmony, exquisite text-painting and remarkable sensitivity, “Discoveries” was a celebration of the accomplishments of female scientists, a recognition of their marginalization and a strong call to action." Grace has received commissions from Women's Voices Chorus, the Washington National Cathedral, St. George Children's Choir, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, Assumption University, Herriman High School Vivace, Maple Mountain High School, and the Utah Chamber Artists. She and her partner live with their two beloved dogs, Jack and Penny.
