Osmond Chiu, viola with guest
Osmond Chiu presents: Viola X: Ski the Outer Limits

As a sales and marketing professional and musician, Osmond Chiu brings a unique perspective of experience in the arts and culture scene, not-for-profit sector, and the ski industry. A big picture thinker who has a strong desire to break down barriers and expectations, he aims to create a framework where people of any age can be active community participants.

With over 15 years’ experience in the music scene, Osmond works in Sales & Marketing at Sunshine Village Ski Resort during the day curating positive experiences to turn guests into raving fans, and in the evenings he plays the occasional music gig while mentoring and inspiring the next generation of musicians.

He is a current board member of Luminous Voices, Calgary’s professional chamber choir, and chairs its Marketing Committee. Osmond has a Bachelor of Music in Viola Performance and a Bachelor of Commerce from the University of Calgary. He is also a current board member of the Banff Canmore Community Foundation.

Between winter powder day skiing in the mountains and summer road biking excursions, you can find Osmond regularly performing orchestral music with the Firebird Symphony and Chorus, Calgary Civic Symphony and Symphony of the Kootenays.

The viola is one of the most under appreciated instruments in music, as it is often shadowed by the more flamboyant violins and the larger deeper cellos and bass. Joined by cellist Shirley Wright, explore a noon hour concert celebrating the power and beauty of the viola.”-Osmond C.

This concert is the fourth in a series of five Emerging Artists Concerts during 2023 generously sponsored by:
