Madeline Hildebrand

Contemporary Piano and Piano Duets

Madeline Hildebrand

Madeline is a versatile pianist, quickly becoming a top-pick as a soloist and collaborator across Canada and the US. She has appeared recently in concert with Philip Glass (Winnipeg New Music Festival), the Kronos Quartet (Mass MoCA), with Yarn/Wire (DiMenna Center, New York), and as a soloist for Music Toronto's COSE series.

Whether cooperating with a singer or a sine wave, Madeline's collaborative virtuosity leads much of her work. Highlights from this season include Winnipeg's Cluster Festival, Vancouver's Music on Main, and performances with Trio Joya in the Netherlands, and Ireland. Her debut album with her duo partner, oboist Caitlin Broms-Jacobs, is set to release in the fall through the label Leaf Music. She is a vigorous advocate for bringing classical music to rural communities and homes as evidenced by her solo tours with Home Routes, GroupMuse (NYC), and Living Room Live.

Madeline founded the Young Artists Program for Winnipeg's Virtuosi Concert Series, where she served on the board for seven years. As an educator, Madeline holds a summer teaching post in Port Milford, Ontario (Music at Port Milford). As an adjudicator and master class clinician, she has appeared at numerous festivals throughout Canada, and enjoys her present post as interim instructor at Brandon University, and Canadian Mennonite University. Madeline Hildebrand recently completed her Doctor of Musical Arts in Piano Performance at Stony Brook University, NY. Madeline is grateful for the support of the Winnipeg and Manitoba Arts Councils.
