The Sayward Valley Folk Music Society in collaboration with Living Room Live will present renowned Canadian Pianist Madeline Hildebrand in a concert of classical music at the Heritage Hall in Sayward on Tuesday, April 23 at 7 p.m..
Hildebrand graduated with a masters degree from UBC, where she studied under the distinguished pianist Jane Coop. She began her serious studies with Judith Kehler Siebert at the University of Manitoba. Her playing has taken her coast to coast in Canada and the U.S., Italy and Romania. Recent concert highlights include performing with Philip Glass and the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra in 2018, a concerto performance with the Thunder Bay Orchestra, a cross country tour with soprano Sarah Kirsch, and a premier of Pat Carrabres piano quintet 100,000 Lakes for the Agassiz Chamber Music Festival.
