Canadian flutist Nadia Kyne first attracted national attention in 2001 when she was awarded the Grand Award at the National Music Festival Finals, becoming one of the youngest competitors in any discipline to receive this honor. Since then, she has performed throughout Canada, the United States and Japan as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestra member. In April of 2011 she was appointed to the position of Assistant Principal Flute and Piccolo with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra.
A recipient of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s “Galaxie Rising Stars Award”, Kyne has appeared as soloist with the Vancouver and Edmonton Symphonies, and has performed at the Stratford Music Festival, the Vancouver Recital Society’s “Summer Combustion” Chamber Music Festival, the Tanglewood Music Center, and the Pacific Music Festival.
Passionate about music education and social justice, she has spent past summers working as a teaching artist for the New-York based NGO, Artists Striving to End Poverty (ASTEP). Widely in demand as a clinician and adjudicator, she is also currently on the faculty of the Vancouver Academy of Music and the St James Music Academy on the Downtown Eastside.
A native of Vancouver, British Columbia, Nadia Kyne was accepted to the Curtis Institute of Music in 2003, where she held the Edwin and Alma Lakin Fellowship for flute study under Jeffrey Khaner. Upon graduation, she was awarded the Irene Diamond Fellowship from the Juilliard School, where she received a Masters Degree in May, 2009.
