Sapphire Skye Toth earned her Bachelor of the Arts Degree in Music Composition at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln with a Clarinet Performance emphasis and a minor in Business in May of 2022. This year she began her Masters of Science Degree in Arts Administration at Boston University.
Toth is a nerd at heart, loving everything from traditional literature to Dungeons & Dragons to video games. This love for world-creating combined with their love of music is what drives her to be a composer. That and seeing the fun performers get to have as they interact on stage. This nerdiness is also the driving force behind the podcast Chatting with Creators! On the show Toth connects composers and musicians in the emerging media arts with students to dive deep into their projects and careers.
As a musician Toth has played clarinet and saxophone in a variety of large and chamber ensembles since middle school. In her undergraduate career they discovered a huge lack of support for grassroots efforts and public policy to support Education & Engagement in music. That’s why she’s pursuing a degree in Arts Administration. As an arts administrator she has previously worked with The Lied Center for the Performing Arts, paladino media, and The Glenn Korff School of Music.
Toth currently works as a freelance composer, composing for live ensembles as well as new and emerging media. Notable recent projects include the score for Western Meadowlark Productions’s short film Moving in Stereo, Theme in Yellow commissioned by Dr. Andrew Peck for Renaissance Magnet High School, and The City of Forget-Me-Nots ft. Jacob “Average” Johnson and Rhiannon Ling.
