Jasper Wood

Canadian violinist Jasper Wood has performed with many of North America’s finest orchestras, in cities such as Toronto, Montreal, Winnipeg, Buffalo, and throughout Europe. He has performed under the batons of Gregory Novak, George Cleve, Georg Tintner, Bramwell Tovey, and Miguel HarthBedoya. Jasper has also garnered acclaim for his performances as a recitalist and chamber musician which have taken him to major cities worldwide in venues such as Dame Myra Hess (Chicago), Carnegie Weill Recital Hall (New York) and the Toronto Centre for the Performing Arts. Jasper has been equally committed to performing in Canada’s smaller communities, such as the Northwest Territories. Jasper performs with guitarist Daniel Bolshoy in Duo Rendezvous, and piano trio Triple Forte with pianist David Jalbert and cellist Yegor Dyachkov. He also performs frequently with pianist David Riley, with whom he has performed for twenty years and collaborated on multiple recordings. A recent project was the recording of the works of American composer Mathew Fuerst and he regularly visits schools and gives masterclasses. Jasper Wood resides in Vancouver with his wife, Grace, and two children, and is Associate Professor of violin and chamber music at the University of British Columbia. He plays a 1914 Stefano Scarampella violin.

Julian Armour

Over the past twenty years, Julian Armour has distinguished himself as a performing musician, arts administrator and artistic director, and has performed in concert halls in Canada, the United States, and Europe. His 2014 CD with the Chamber Players of Canada was nominated for a Juno Award, and his 2016 recording of Chopin concertos with Janina Fialkowska and the Chamber Players of Canada was named no. 14 on the CBC’s list of the 30 best Canadian classical recordings ever. In 2002 Mr. Armour
was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal by the Governor General, and was named a Chevalier de l’ordre des arts et des lettres by the Government of France. Julian is Artistic and Executive Director of Music and Beyond, Artistic Director of the Chamber Players of Canada, and Principal Cellist with the Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra. He is also a regular sessional lecturer of both music performance and arts administration at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University.

Frédéric Lacroix

Pianist Frédéric Lacroix has performed in the United States, Canada and Taiwan, including performances with the Albany and Ottawa Symphony Orchestras, Cornell Chamber Orchestra, Ensemble Fusions and the Society of New Music. He has enjoyed collaborating with composers and performers in the premiere of a number of Canadian and American works. As a composer, he has been privileged to have his works performed in the United States and Canada. Mr. Lacroix currently teaches at the
University of Ottawa and is a graduate of l’Université de Montréal and the University of Ottawa, where he studied with Marc Durand,Cynthia Floyd and Andrew Tunis. He recently obtained his doctoral degree in keyboard performance practice from Cornell University, where he studied with Malcolm Bilson. For his work in the field of early music, Mr. Lacroix was named the Westfield Center Performing Scholar at Cornell University

Arsentiy Kharitonov

After his triumphant debut at Carnegie Hall, Arsentiy Kharitonov has been placed “in the top ranks of keyboard players today” (New York Observer). While “fully in command of the technical and emotional demands of the music,” he is described as a pianist of “sumptuous tone, technical mastery, broad dramatic range of an astonishing breadth, and elegant phrasing” (Fanfare Magazine). Pianist and composer and prize winner of national and international competitions, Arsentiy Kharitonov has been heard in solo recitals and with orchestras in Russia, Europe, Asia and the USA. Mr. Kharitonov started playing piano at an unusually late age of sixteen, in the Rimsky-Korsakov College of Music of the famed St. Petersburg Conservatory in Russia, where his musical progress was immediate and astounding. Within three years he was giving solo recitals, which featured his own compositions and improvisations in a variety of musical styles in addition to the standard piano repertoire.
