Acclaimed Canadian pianist Jon Kimura Parker describes Madeline Hildebrand as “an extraordinary young artist whose communicative skills convey the essence of all that she plays. Her pianism is of the highest level, and she has an instinctive understanding of beautiful sound.” Maddy graduated from the University of British Columbia where she studied under distinguished pianist Jane Coop. Her playing has taken her coast to coast in Canada and America, Italy and Romania. Her recent engagements have included a concerto performance with the Thunder Bay Orchestra, a house concert tour throughout the prairies with flutist Haley Marie, a cross Canada tour with soprano Sarah Kirsch and chamber music concerts with Winnipeg’s foremost classical musicians.

She is the winner of the 2012 Doris McClellan competition and the silver medalist of the 2013 EGre competition. Highlights from the 2017/18 season include an appearance at the WSO New Music Festival playing Philip Glass’s etudes alongside Glass himself, and performances with her trio, Ensemble Exchange.
