Notice biographique

Gena Branscombe was born in Picton, Ontario on November 4, 1881. She was a composer and conductor, and left Canada in 1897 to study and work in the United States. Her piano pieces, songs, and choral and orchestral works were published and performed in both countries. In 1934, she founded The Branscombe Choral (1934-1954) in New York, for whom she composed and arranged works. The choir also premiered various musical works by other female composers. Branscombe died in New York on July 26, 1977.
