Gaudeamus Award 2020 Nominee

Annika Socolofsky

Annika Socolofsky (1990) is a US composer and avant folk vocalist. Her music erupts from the power and nuance of the human voice and is communicated through mediums ranging from orchestral and operatic works to unaccompanied folk ballads. Annika writes extensively for her own voice with chamber ensemble, including a growing repertoire of ‘feminist rager-lullabies’ titled Don’t Say a Word, which serves to confront centuries of damaging lessons taught to young children by retelling old lullaby texts for a new, queer era.
