Laura is active in Ottawa's classical music scene as a freelance violinist. She is a founding member of Gatineau, Quebec's premier chamber music group: Ensemble Prisme, and also helped found the Ottawa Baroque Consort, an early music ensemble. As an orchestral player, Laura has performed widely in the Ottawa area as a freelancer and regular member of various groups. She was a member of the Ottawa Symphony Orchestra as assistant concertmaster and principal second violin from 2000-2011. She was also principal second violin of the now-defunct, Orchestre des concerts symphoniques de Gatineau.
Laura shares her passion for the violin
with a lively group of students, aged 4-17. The youngest of these is
Laura's own daughter, who, at the ripe age of 6, gleefully improvises
her own songs on the piano and the violin.
For a third consecutive year, she and a group of students performed as part of the Ottawa Chamber Music Society's Family Music Fair in May, 2009. They also
make regular appearances at the Ottawa Hospital Rehabilitation Centre
and at local retirement homes. As a Suzuki Violin Teacher, she is sought
after to teach at summer institutes and workshops year-round in New
Hampshire, Edmonton, Montreal, Quebec City, Boston and beyond. She loves
working with students of all ages and levels, sharing her enthusiasm
for music and learning.
