Canadian pianist Jacqueline Woods is known for exciting, dynamic playing and accessible presentation.
She commands a wide range of repertoire but has a particular love for the world of chamber music. In 2008, Jacqueline co-founded the Ritornello Chamber Music Festival with violinist Carissa Klopoushak. Striving to bring the chamber music concert experience into the 21st century, Ritornello Fest showcases exciting, young Canadian musicians in fresh and innovative concert situations. Saskatchewan's only chamber music festival, Ritornello takes place the last weekend of May.
Jacqueline’s musical career has taken her around the world - from Budapest to New York. She is an advanced candidate of the SUNY Doctor of Musical Arts program.
These days, you’ll find Jacqueline working as a communications strategist and writer in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, performing chamber music, advocating for the arts and playing keyboards and percussion in an indie rock duo, Portal, with her husband Marc Collette.
