MASON BYNES

Mason Bynes is a composer and vocalist from Sugar Land, TX. In a post - modern tradition,

she pulls from various stylistic sources, blurring the line between traditionalism and

Bachelor of Music in composition. Mason will graduate with a master’s degree in

composition from The Boston Conservatory at Berklee in May 2021.
