Paul Suchan

Paul Suchan is a Canadian composer of instrumental and vocal music. His work is described as engaging and profound, though diverse in stylistic range and difficulty.

Many of Canada’s leading ensembles have performed works by Mr. Suchan, including the McGill Wind Symphony, Regina Symphony Orchestra, University of Saskatchewan Greystone Singers and the National Youth Band of Canada among others.

In 2011 Mr. Suchan completed The Beast in the Jungle, a ninety minute opera commissioned through the Brian and Elaine Dawe Performing Arts Grant. The Beast in the Jungle was premiered in Montreal with full orchestra under the baton of the composer.

An unashamed Saskatchewanian, Paul (Born 1983) is from Saskatoon, where he graduated with a B. Mus (2007) and B.Mus Ed (2007) from the University of Saskatchewan. He furthered his studies at the Universite de Montreal with a M.Mus in Composition (2012) where he studied with composer Alan Belkin.
