SONJA ADAMS, Principal Cello

 

Before earning her Bachelor of Music in Performance degree from the University of Toronto in 1985, Sonja Adams was actively involved in the flourishing Vancouver music scene. She has incorporated the same interest in her adopted home province, with an impressive private studio that includes students from across New Brunswick. She also coaches a number of the province’s youth orchestras, including the award-winning New Brunswick Youth Orchestra and serves as faculty at summer music camps and extensive in-school concert programs. Recognizing her enduring commitment to Arts and Culture in the province – both as a volunteer and as a professional musician – Sonja Adams was honoured with a New Brunswick Merit Award.
