She is a member of the acclaimed Winter Harp ensemble, which performs Celtic, medieval, and classical music, touring British Columbia, Manitoba and Alberta. Janelle has toured Canada with the National Youth Orchestra, has performed for Celebrity Cruises and has played in the backup band for Kanye West.
Her performances have been heard on CBC as well as VIA TVA television. This bilingual harpist was chosen to perform in Manitoba’s popular Home Routes concert tour and is currently working with Grammy-nominee Deborah Henson-Conant on her small cast show “What the Hell are we Doing in the Waiting Room for Heaven.”
Janelle’s musical training started in Winnipeg and continued in Vancouver. Since her graduation from UBC, Janelle has been taking master classes and workshops with harpists and musicians of different styles of music including Latin, jazz, Celtic and folk. This has given her much motivation in her composing, playing and singing.
Janelle is currently composing music for harp and voice, teaching harp and working on a solo album. One of Janelle’s passions is to play solo concerts showcasing different genres of harp music. She also plays for weddings, corporate functions and other gatherings in need of harp background music, and was recently invited to perform at the prestigious World Harp Congress!
The elegant sounds of the harp are translated beautifully through Janelle’s talent and passion for the instrument. Her charm and charisma, add something special to any event.
