Stephanie Orlando is a composer with an eclectic creative practice that ventures into concert music, sound installations, and performance art. Her catalogue contains works for standard ensembles to less common performing forces—orchestra, amplified pill bottles, and everything in between. She has collaborated with performers, choreographers, and visual artists.


She has had her work performed by ensembles and soloists such as Esprit Orchestra, 5th Wave OrchestraDuo D'Entre-Deuxthe Freesound SeriesFemmeldoy Chamber Music Collective, Stereoscope Saxophone DuojunctQin Keyboard CollectiveDaniel Ramjattan, and Yang Chen.

One of her current projects is a series of mixed media solo and chamber works that explore various aspects of mental wellness. Through this long term project she seeks to create honest and vulnerable works that connect with listeners who see themselves in her work and feel represented in bringing the conversation on mental wellness to the concert stage.


Stephanie has received funding for commissioning, travel, and professional development from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, Toronto Arts Council, SOCAN Foundation, and the Association of Canadian Women Composers. She is an Associate Composer of the Canadian Music Centre (CMC) and a member of the Association of Canadian Women Composers (ACWC/ACC).


Her sound installation "Sonic Bikes!" was presented as part of Nuit Blanche Toronto 2023. Upcoming projects include new orchestral work commissioned by Symphony Nova Scotia in the 2024/25 season.
