Harpist ~ I Studied with Toronto harpist, Chantal Dubé, the Canadian Opera company orchestras principle harpist, Sarah Davidson, and Julie Umbrico at the Royal Conservatory. In 2015 I was a gold medalist with the Royal Conservatory for my grade six-grade practical exam. In 2016 I received another gold medal for my grade eight practical exam and attained first class honors in my grade eight practical exam. I have also performed with the JSO (Jubilance Singers and Orchestra) and recorded an album with them which was released in 2016. My twin sister Heather and I enjoy offering elegant romantic performances as a harp and cello duo! We offer couples a dynamic and unforgettable experience. When performing we often perform in elegant matching dresses and I play on my 46 string semi-grand pedal harp. When I am not performing as a harpist, I enjoy studying Art/Art history.
Harpist ~ I began harp lessons with harpist Chantal Dubé in 2003. Since the beginning of my musical career, I have enjoyed performing and sharing my music with my family and the community. In my early years, I would perform with my school orchestra before graduating into high school. In 2008 I completed my Royal Conservatory grade eight practical exam. I have been continuing in my studies with Suzanne Thomas, former Principal harpist (for 52 years) in the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra. I am currently performing for Chantal Dube on my 47 string grand pedal harp at various events throughout the GTA.
Cellist ~ I have a musical background in piano, flute and have been playing cello since 2012, studying with Peter Cosby, a cellist in Annex string quartet, since 2013. In 2015, I traveled as a cellist to Armenia with the JSO (Jubilance Singers and Orchestra). I have also been apart of the JSO and recorded an album in 2016. My twin twin sister Naomi and I enjoy offering elegant romantic performances as a harp and cello duo! When I am not playing my cello I enjoy painting the works of artists including Ingres and Botticelli.
