Stephen Chatman (b2/28/1950)

Stephen Chatman is one of Canada’s most prolific and well-known composers. His teachers included the prominent United States composer William Bolcom and the late innovative German composer Karlheinz Stockhausen. With an undergraduate degree from Oberlin Conservatory in Ohio and graduate degrees from the University of Michigan, he is the head of composition at UBC’s School of Music in Vancouver, where he has taught since 1976. A multiple award-winner, he has been commissioned by many of Canada’s choirs, orchestras, ensembles and artists, but is especially known for his numerous choral works. Before 1982, his music tended to be complex and atonal, but since then it has shown influences of many musical styles, becoming more accessible, moving away from modernism and embracing a world of spirituality, reaching out to a broader audience. He has been quoted as saying, “It’s easy to enjoy all types of music—I don’t want to be pigeon-holed. A composer must be true to himself.”
