Omar Daniel has composed extensively in solo, chamber, electronic and orchestral idioms and was the 1997 recipient of the Jules Lèger Award for New Chamber Music. Other composition awards include the 2007 K.M. Hunter Arts Award, the SOCAN National Competition for Young Composers and the CBC National Radio Competition for Young Composers. He hasn’t won an award in a while now but hopes to cash in if someone creates a competition for old-timers. He is also an active pedagogue and holds the Associate Professor in Composition position at Western University.
