Art Song Lab

Where Poets Composers & Poets Come Together

Nicholas Kelly

Nicholas Ryan Kelly is a classically-trained composer of speculative fiction. He recently finished dual master's degrees in music composition and library/information studies at UBC and has since been roaming the Prairies, working as a librarian in Edmonton and Saskatoon and composing whatever strikes his fancy. In 2014, his compositional activities ranged from readings by the Vancouver and Victoria Symphony orchestras to commissions and compositions for elementary school band and community choir.

Art Song Lab was created and takes place on the traditional, ancestral and unceded territory of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations.
