Ethan Hill, Piano with Jennie Crane, Cello and Jeanine Williams, Mezzo-Soprano

Ethan Hill is a musician, composer and inquisitive mind. Showing an interest in music at an early age, Ethan studied piano and theory throughout his childhood while also experimenting with several other instruments. He later pursued music in post secondary, studying composition at the University of Victoria, where he also trained as a liturgical musician at St. John the Divine Anglican Church. In 2019, he relocated to Montreal to study the organ at McGill University, during which time he held an organ scholarship at Christ Church Cathedral and worked with the Quatuor Bozzini.

His work in the church sparked his fascination with metaphysics, symbolism and ontology, which he continues to explore today. All of this ultimately manifests itself through his compositions, where he explores intonation theory, sound cognition as well as his curiosity for the ineffable.

Currently, he is based in Calgary, Alberta and works with several artistic groups including the Alberta Ballet, the University of Calgary and Sacred Heart Church & Columbarium, and dedicates his free time to his personal creative endeavors and research. He continues to develop his artistry through residencies such as the Banff Centre for Art and Creativity’s Evolution: Quartet 2022 and the Montreal Contemporary Music Lab.

Jenny Crane is a multi-faceted Cellist who is passionate about performing within diverse music genres and collaboration between multiple artistic mediums, including film and visual effects and composing original compositions cello. 

Jenny holds a master’s degree in music performance from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and an undergraduate degree in music performance from the University of Montreal. Jenny began her studies with John Kadz in Calgary at the music academy of Mount Royal University. She has had the opportunity to learn from world class Cellists including Andres Diaz, Laurence Lesser, Hans Jorgen-Jensen, Desmond Hoebig, Ron Leonard, and Steven Isserlis.

One highlight of her career has been performing for the composer Krystof Penderecki at the Morningside Music bridge international music program in Gdansk Poland, performing movements from his Divertimento for solo cello.

Jeanine Williams is a creative soul noted for the “size and character of her singing, and her thoughtful musicality.” ( She is currently based in Calgary, Alberta where she works in disability-arts education for Calgary Opera. Williams also runs her own therapeutic and recreation music and wellness studio, Medela YYC. Williams is studying for her Master of Counseling at City University, and on the side enjoys creative writing and performing in drag. (As The Frizz!) After completing her Master of Music at the University of Ottawa, Ms. Williams has performed across Canada and even made a brief stint in Austria. Some of Williams’ operatic highlights include Dido (Dido and Aeneas ), Mother (Hansel und Gretel), and Mimi (La Boheme). Williams’ recent performances include the premiere of contemporary composer Rob Hunter’s Good Story at GRAND theatre, The Merry Widow  with Calgary Opera, and a collaborative recital with Ethan Hill. Upcoming engagements include Good Story in Victoria, British Columbia, and a recital for Mother’s Day. Searching for wellness through art, Williams aspires to foster expressive spaces and assist in both the performance and creation of Canadian music today.

Born and raised in Alberta, we have all studied abroad and subsequently returned to our home province. We were connected through social media and inspired to collaborate and share our mutual love for music with our community. In the past, we have organized and presented concerts of our own like Bach, Brahms and Bucking Broncos, and are currently in the process of preparing a showcase for Mother’s Day.

For our February 22 concert, we have prepared a programme of both recognizable classics as well as some less-common pieces that complement our instruments and their combinations.
