Olivia is from Saskatoon, SK, and is completing her final year at Western University’s Don Wright Faculty of Music in the Bachelor of Music Performance Honours program. She enjoys collaborating with musicians and artists and has worked with organizations including the Saskatchewan Craft Council, the Saskatchewan Music Collection Project, and now AKA Artist-Run. She has been a private music instructor for 6 years and enjoys bringing out the inner artist in her students as she encourages them to develop their artistic practice and share with their community. Olivia has volunteered to work with Canadian Fire Missions abroad in the Philippines, Romania, and Moldova, and contributed to their on-going work with vulnerable community members, churches, and non-profit organizations. Besides her work as a teacher, she has worked with youth at the Summer Academy for Voice and Piano, Circle Square Ranch, and through her University internship experiences. Her current artistic research looks at the music of Canadian women composers and she has performed lecture recitals in Canada and Portugal on this topic. She is excited to bring her experience in the musical arts to Locals Only and looks forward to learning from the youth, artists, and community participants she will be working with.
