About

Driven by storytelling and imagery, Brittney Benton's music takes you on a journey

through a lush melodic and harmonic soundscape, filled with personality at every turn.

Brittney holds a Bachelor’s degree in Music Composition with a Minor in Music Technology from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, and is attending the Yale School of Music for her Masters in Music Composition. She is very interested in working outside of the concert hall, especially in the realm of video game music.​

Brittney’s music has been performed by the Bellevue Chamber Chorus, ZOFO, the Beo String Quartet, the Lowell Chamber Orchestra, the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, and more.

In 2020, she was named the winner of PARMA Recordings “Summer 2020 Call For Scores”, and the winner of the Bellevue Chamber Chorus’ “Emerging Composer Competition” in 2021. In 2022, she was named one of the winners of Chicago a Capella’s “Her Voice Competition”.

​Recent composition festivals include the 2020 Charlotte New Music Festival and Connecticut Summerfest 2021. She also attended the inaugural Akropolis Chamber Music Institute (ACMI) in 2022.  This summer, she will be attending the 2024 Alba Music Composition Festival in Alba, Italy.

Her principal teachers include Jennifer Bellor, Viet Cuong, Aaron Jay Kernis, and Chris Theofanidis. She has attended masterclasses with Richard Danielpour, Michael Torke, Marc Mellits, Juan Pablo Contreras, and David Conte.
