  • Nadia Kyne
    Canadian flutist Nadia Kyne first attracted national attention in 2001 when, at the age of sixteen, she was awarded the Grand Award at the National Music Festival Finals becoming one of the youngest competitors in any discipline to receive this honor. Since then, she has performed throughout Canada, the United States and Japan as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestra member. In April of 2011 she was appointed to the position of Assistant Principal Flute and Piccolo with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra. A recipient of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Galaxie Rising Stars Award”, Kyne has appeared as soloist with the Vancouver and Edmonton Symphonies, and has performed at the Stratford Music Festival, the Vancouver Recital Society’s “Summer Combustion” Chamber Music Festival, the Tanglewood Music Center, and the Pacific Music Festival. Recent performance highlights include the world premiere of Evan Fein’s Sonata for Flute and Piano in New York City, performances at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall, Avery Fisher Hall, as well as MoMA’s “Summergarden Series”, the Guggenheim Museum’s “Works and Process” series, and Axiom @ Le Poisson Rouge. Passionate about new and cross-genre music, Ms. Kyne has recently performed with the Axiom Ensemble, the New Juilliard Ensemble and the New York-based indie rock band Vampire Weekend in a performance for MTV Unplugged. A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Nadia Kyne began her flute studies with Jane Martin, Camille Churchfield and Brenda Fedoruk at the Vancouver Academy of Music. In 2003, she was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she held the Alma and Edwin Lakin Fellowship for flute study under Jeffrey Khaner, principal flutist of the Philadelphia Orchestra. In 2007 she was awarded the Irene Diamond Fellowship from the Juilliard School, where she received a Masters Degree in May, 2009.

    Lea Ault is a co-owner of the Hapa Izakaya/Hapa Umi restaurant group ( Born in Vancouver, she is an alumni of Magee Secondary School, the University of British Columbia, and the Vancouver Academy of Music. She started taking Kodaly classes in the old VAM building, on the site where City Square stands now (at Cambie and West 12th Avenue) in 1976. When the new Academy opened, she attended Kodaly classes with Mr. Young and studied piano with Mrs. Hardy. (Her sister Erin studied Suzuki piano and ballet with Mrs. Lee.) Her musical training stood her in good stead when she was a member of the national-award-winning Magee Chamber Choir. To pay for university she worked at The Magic Flute on West 4th Avenue and learned much more about classical music during her time there. She spent the 90s traveling and living abroad in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, London, England and Singapore. Now she lives in Vancouver, and still enjoys playing the piano. Her daughters Mio and Hana attend VAM for piano with Rebecca Kelly and Amanda Chan, and ballet with Alice Gerbrecht.
