Dong-In Danny Choi (b. 1998) is a versatile young Canadian composer known for his expansive repertoire spanning large ensemble concert works, chamber music, solo compositions, and more. Also a professional media composer for film and television scores, his music has been placed in TV shows produced by Warner Bros Discover, and in various short films. 

As part of the judging panel of the JUNOS Awards, he is an active member of the Canadian music scene. His music is played internationally, including collaborations with ensembles including the Standing Wave, Erato, Nu:BC Ensembles, the NYU Contemporary Ensemble, the Vancouver and Victoria Symphony Orchestras, the National Youth Band of Canada, the UBC Symphonic Wind Ensemble, Concert Winds, and Symphony Orchestra, and NYU Orchestra. He is also the winner of the 2022 Alan Menken Scholarship and the 2019 Howard Cable Memorial Prize in Composition.

​Largely self-taught in composition, orchestration, and various instruments (piano/keys, clarinet, guitar, drums, saxophone, and cello) starting at age 10, he is fluent in many different genres. His flexibility in classical, choral, jazz, rock, funk, pop, and contemporary church music genres allows him a wide array and palette in his work. He has studied Screen Scoring at NYU (MM ’23), and Music Composition at the Unversity of British Columbia (BMus ’20). His mentors include Jocelyn Morlock, Keith Hamel, Stephen Chatman, Pat Carrabré, Dorothy Chang, Rodney Sharman, Eric Hachikian, John Kaefer, and Catherine Joy.

In pursuit of creating emotionally resonant music, Choi explores innovative ways to engage audiences through accessible performance culture and multimedia audio-visual components. His commitment to the craft of film scoring and his expansive musical palette continue to define his evolving career in composition.
