Madeline Hildebrand, Piano
Madeline Hildebrand’s love for piano music has directed her path from the age of six, culminating in a Master of Piano Performance from the University of British Columbia under the tutelage of distinguished Canadian artist, Jane Coop. The opportunities afforded before and since have been numerous and exhilarating, including the prestigious Doris McLellan first prize in live solo performance with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and a recent silver medal finish in the 2013 E-gré National Piano competition.
Maddy’s performances have taken her to Vancouver and Howe Sound, to premieres for Manitoba’s Cluster festival, collaborations with veteran composers Michael Matthews and Randolph Peters, numerous house concerts and most recently, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Madeline is presently on the piano faculty at Canadian Mennonite University. Upcoming engagements include a faculty position with the Rosamunde Chamber Music Festival, Randolph Peters’ The Adventures of Piano Woman with the Thunder Bay Symphony and a return to the WSO Soundbytes Series next season.
