Katie Leussink - Piano, Voice and Theory (780) 625-7332
Katie began her music education at an early age, studying piano and voice. During this time she completed her RCM grade 8 piano exam, and grade 2 theory. After high school, she left to pursue undergraduate studies in music at University in Edmonton, and then in Calgary. She graduated in April 2010 with a Bachelor's Degree in Music, majoring in vocal performance & musicology (music theory & history). An avid composer, she was asked to perform in Calgary's Ignite Festival for Emerging Artists in the summer of 2010. Since September 2010, she has been a "judge" for the Peace Idol competitions, directed the Peace River Children's Community Choir in 2010-2011, and continues to direct the First Baptist Church adult choir, women's and men's ensemble. She also actively performs with her husband Jason under the band name "Jason and Kate". Her hunger for knowledge continues as she plans to take her grade 10 RCM exams in the next year, pursue performance, and begin studies for her master's degree.
