Mira Benjamin

Mira Benjamin was born in Vancouver, Canada, into a family of music theorists, and began studying the violin at the age of three. Her musical energy and versatility have made her an active contributor to Canada’s artistic community. A devoted performer of new music, Mira works regularly with composers and has premiered over one hundred new works by Canadian and international composers.

She joined the Quatuor Bozzini in 2011. Since moving to Montréal, Mira has performed actively with ensembles such as the Société de musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ), the Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM+), the Nouvel ensemble moderne (NEM) and Portmantô. She is founder and Artistic co-Director of nu:nord — a platform for dialogue and community-building between emerging new music creators from Canada, Scandinavia and the UK. Mira holds an Artist Diploma and Bachelor of Music degree from McGill University’s Schulich School of Music. She is a founding member of the McGill-based music outreach program, Chamber Music Without Borders, which continues to operate today, run by music students to benefit the Montréal community.
