Raeghnya Zutshi started playing the piano while in primary school, and was introduced to the world of choral singing soon after. She has been heavily involved in music throughout recent years, composing for the NODE Ensemble and the Boydell Singers while at Trinity College Dublin, and was elected as conductor of the Boydell Singers and Chairperson of Trinity College Singers. Her experience with choirs has been extensive, singing with Trinity and Boydell Singers, the Mornington Singers, New Dublin Voices, the Campanile Consort, the Park Singers, and the more recently-established Irish Youth Chamber Choir. This vast involvement in choral music has led her to focus on composing for choral settings, a project that currently keeps her occupied. She has an interest in illustrative music, paying close attention to minimalistic ideas that are developed and expanded upon over longer durations.

Having grown up in Singapore, India, Malaysia, USA and Ireland, Zutshi has developed an interest in fusing many different musical styles from around the world, a feature incorporated within several of her compositions
