I have been harpist with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony (KWS) since 1999. Before joining the KWS, I played with Orchestra London and with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra.
I received my Master’s degree from the University of Toronto where I studied with eminent harpist, Judy Loman. My other teaching influences included Catherine Michel in Paris, France and Alice Chalifoux in Camden, Maine.
I have been a regular performer with the Ottawa International Chamber Music Festival, Belladonna and Le NEM, a contemporary chamber group in Montreal with whom I toured through Europe and Japan. I have had solo concerto performances with the National Arts Centre Orchestra, the Edmonton Symphony, Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony and Orchestra London and am a member of the Four Seasons Harp Quartet.
I have played on recordings with singer-songwriters Kevin Fox, and the Grammy-nominated The Reminder by Feist. I enjoy creating performances of music and story with my husband, Tom Allen.
