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.
I have been a violinist/fiddler with 20 years of practice and 10 years of professional, freelance performance. After being strictly classical for many years, I ‘rebelled’ at a young age and now I am most known for my Top 40 Pop, Rock, Hip-Hop, Fiddle, and covers of pop culture themes such as Game of Thrones. I offer acoustic or electric violin for my performances.
Solo and with groups, I have performed around the world (Austria, Hungary, United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Canada), playing to crowds of up to 17,000 in world-class venues, and more private shows of a few dozen in pubs, theatres, and mid-sized musical venues.
Within just four months of moving to Toronto in late August 2015, I found herself sharing the stage with world-class performers such as the Motown/funk band, “LMT Connection”, multiple Juno award winners and have done shows for high-end, award-winning event companies.
I love to perform with harpists but I can also provide you with amazing solo dinner entertainment! My electric violin and my amazing showmanship will captivate you!
