Jonathan Raine

Having grown up in Yellowknife, Johnathan Raine began his musical studies with Ardith Dean and Anita Kuzma and was a participant in Yellowknife’s first music festival in 2009. He has since performed in many solo and collaborative recitals, including the inaugural gala concert for the Morinville Arts Centre alongside members of the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. He holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in piano performance from the University of Western Ontario, having studied under the tutelage of Dr. Leslie Kinton. He completed his Master’s of Music at McGill University under Dr. Stéphane Lemelin and his Bachelor of Music at the University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus with Dr. Milton Schlosser.

In February, 2023 we were honoured to host Jonathan during a nostalgic visit to the home of his youth. He helped us to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Yellowknife Music Festival, by coaching students, running workshops, performing in our Anniversary Concert and giving a virtuoso solo piano concert of his own.
