String arranger and composer/orchestrator for chamber orchestra, for classical, pop, rock, jazz & world contemporary music. Berklee College of Music Alum'15.
My name is Simona Smirnova! I am a musician and composer based in New York City. Classically trained on traditional Lithuanian zither, and having a jazz vocal degree; I have been a full time performer, composer and educator for the past decade. I graduated in 2015 from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Contemporary Writing & Production.
I am available to create string arrangements for recording projects and for special live event sessions. I receive the track(s) from the artist, arrange the parts in sheet music form and then deliver this to the artist and musicians. I am happy to create melody from scratch, if you need a new track for your project. Can deliver a song within 1 week.
- Solo / Quartet / Chamber / Full Orchestra are available
(Standard Team Composition : 5 vn.I / 4 vn.II / 3 va / 2 vc)
- can be arranged for your request
If the artist does not have string players in mind to play the parts, I am happy to assist in finding players for the project. I am also available for transcription of pre-arranged music into sheet music form.
I specialize in string writing, but I also enjoy writing for big-band, horn sections, 5-horn bands. I love creative and interesting projects!
