John Estacio

Composer

As a boy, John Estacio grew up on the Holland Marsh, a fertile farming community in Southern Ontario. His passion, however, wasn’t farming; it was music. Specifically, he was determined to create. Renowned for composing operas, chamber and orchestral music, John regards composing as a way to tell stories. Once it’s on paper, collaboration transforms it again.
