Katelin Coleman was born in Burnaby, B.C., and first picked up the bassoon near the end of high school. She studied for a year in Vancouver with Julia Lockhart before moving to Montreal to study with Martin Mangrum and Stéphane Levesque at McGill University in 2008. She completed her Bachelor's in bassoon performance at McGill in 2012, and went on to pursue a Master's at the Staatlichen Hochschule für Musik und Datstellende Kunst in Mannheim, Germany, where she studied with Ole Kristian Dahl.
Katelin was an active freelancer throughout Europe; during her studies, she played regularly with Kammerphilharmonie Mannheim, Heidelberger Sinfoniker, Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Het Gelders Orkest as both a principal and a tutti player. She later won the position of second bassoon in the Danish Radio National Symphony Orchestra in Copenhagen, Denmark, on a temporary contract, and went on to hold a contract in Odense Symphony Orchestra as well. During this time, she has also been a trialist for the position of co-principal bassoon in the RTÉ Irish National Symphony Orchestra in Dublin, Ireland, and continued to freelance throught Scandinavia, playing with the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and the Finnish Radio Orchestra. Since her return to the Lower Mainland in 2016, Katelin has played with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, the Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, Allegra Chamber Orchestra and the Okanagan Symphony Orchestra.
Katelin is also a passionate chamber musician. She is a member of the Vancouver-based Ventos Wind Quintet, and has performed chamber music concerts with players from the Danish Radio, Malmö Symphony, Copenhagen Philharmonic, and most recently, the Loïc Dequidt Ensemble - a Sweden-based jazz/Classical nonette, performing all original compositions.
Whether holding a coffee mug, cup, or holding on in transit, Marko Ivkovic always moves his fingers and imagines he is playing the clarinet. Born in Kragujevac, Serbia, Marko’s path as a clarinetist has taken him all the way to the other side of the world, to Vancouver, Canada, where he is currently pursuing his post-graduate studies in the Artist Diploma Program at the Vancouver Academy of Music (VAM).
Marko received his Bachelor of Music Degree at the Academy of Arts Novi Sad. During his studies in Serbia, he has achieved numerous awards including two Laureates(2009, 2011) for his playing in Serbia, as well as first prize in Grand Prix I Woodwind & Brass competition 2017 in clarinet category which took place in Varazdin, Croatia.
Marko has traveled extensively in Europe attending clarinet Masterclasses, competitions and orchestras where he has gathered knowledge from versatile professors from around the world. In addition to orchestral and solo performance, Marko has performed with chamber ensembles such as clarinet choirs, woodwind quintets, woodwind trios, piano trios and clarinet duos.
As much as Marko enjoys performing classical pieces, he also believes that with modern times comes modern music, which he warmly embraces. He finds it very intriguing how composers find new ways to make special effects on instruments such as flutter tongue, slap tongue, multiphonics, stomps, claps, glissando, and combining these effects to make something new and interesting.
When asked by one of Marko's clarinet teachers as to the simple most important thing he wished to communicate to an audience, Marko replied: "To me, the most important thing is to have the audience not just wait for the next thing I am about to play, but make them eagerly await every single note that follows..."
Since her debut with the Toronto Symphony, Jane Hayes' concerts have taken her across Canada, the United States, Europe and Mexico. An active recording artist, she has over 20 CDs available on the Fanfare, EMI, Centrediscs, ATMA, Artifact, CBC-Musica Viva and CBC SM5000 labels. Jane moved to BC in 1993 to become a faculty member in the newly opened Music Department of Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Langley. Her passion for teaching was recognized when she received the 2015 Distinguished Teaching Award in the Faculty of Arts. In recent years she has appeared regularly on concert stages in every combination from duo through large ensemble, as soloist with orchestra to chamber collaborator. She is a founding member of Vancouver’s Turning Point Ensemble, the Yarilo Ensemble and Sea and Sky with clarinetist François Houle, violinist Joan Blackman and saxophonist Julia Nolan. Two new Sea and Sky CDs were released in March 2018 featuring music for saxophone, violin, clarinet and piano. Jane has just returned to KPU as Department Head after a year-long sabbatical when she devoted her energy to two main projects: researching possibilities for long-distance music education in northern BC; and giving a series of recitals and master classes in the Henan and Guangdong provinces in China to foster professional development among Chinese piano professors. As a result of her work in China, she was appointed Guest Professor at Henan Polytechnic University and will return annually as a foreign expert.
"Not everyone can bring (the Mendelssohn Concerto) such a cool freshness and momentum, in which there was not the slightest feeling of haste... it was a performance to be remembered." Toronto Star
"The [Schumann Concerto] soared effortlessly to its conclusion. This was fine music-making by pianist, conductor, and orchestra and this was the kind of experience one so often looks forward to and fails to get." Ottawa Journal
"[John Burke’s Remember Your Power] had such an impact that I wanted to hear it again, right away. No small reason was pianist Jane Hayes' galvanizing yet superbly poised performance in a difficult part...." Vancouver Sun
