Nadia Lemaire (Piccolo)
Nadia Lemaire first picked up the flute when she decided to join her elementary school's beginner band at the age of 10. A musician was born! Her musical passion continued to grow throughout high school where she spent five inspirational years studying with Isabelle Brassard at Béatrice-Desloges, and three years studying privately with Beverley Robinson.
Nadia also enjoyed many years of ensemble playing with the Ottawa Junior Youth Orchestra where she received the Itani Family Award. She has also performed with the Parkdale Orchestra, as well as the Denis Wick Canadian Wind Orchestra, where she received the Pearl Outstanding Flute award.
In June, Nadia is graduating from the Bachelor of Music program with specialization in music education at the University of Ottawa where she studied for four years with Camille Churchfield. She kicks off her musical career with tonight's performance.
