Ann Southam was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1937 but lived most of her life in Toronto. After completing musical studies at the University of Toronto and the Royal Conservatory of Music in the early 1960’s, she began a teaching and composing career which has included a long and productive association with modern dance.
Ann passed away one year ago, on November 26th, 2010.
