PARMA Recordings is thrilled to welcome composer and performer Sophya Polevaya to the PARMA Family!

PARMA will be releasing Sophya’s debut EP featuring her original chamber compositions.

Her music has garnered performances internationally; some recent highlights include the Spitalfields Music Festival, Cheltenham Music Festival, and BSO Composers Day.

Sophya received her Bachelor’s degree in composition and solo performance from Royal Holloway, University of London. She continued her composition studies at the Royal Academy of Music in London where she earned her Master’s. This September she’ll begin her doctoral studies in composition at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

Sophya was recently selected to participate in the London Symphony Orchestra’s Panufnik Composers Scheme as a part of the 2017/2018 concert season. The program, supported by the Helen Hamlyn Trust, selects six emerging composers and gives them the opportunity to write a piece that will be performed by the London Symphony Orchestra.

Can’t wait for the EP to listen to Sophya’s music? Here’s a sneak peak:
