Christi Meyers has had a prominent role in the musical life of Victoria, BC for almost 15 years. Assistant Concertmaster of the Victoria Symphony since 2001, she has been active playing in other musical organizations locally—such as the Galiano Ensemble and the Odyssey String Quartet—and away—including the Vancouver Symphony, Sinfonia Rotterdam (NL) and the European Camerata (UK). She has nurtured her love of baroque violin playing as a member of the Victoria Baroque Players, by performing with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, and on numerous projects with Early Music Vancouver.
As an educator, she coaches the violins of the Greater Victoria Youth Orchestra, maintains a small private studio, and was on the music faculty at the University of Victoria from 2005 to 2010.
Christi has recorded chamber music for both CBC Radio and Television, and can be heard on baroque recordings for ATMA (QB) and Marquis (ON).
Born in Montréal and raised in Grande Prairie, Alberta, she holds degrees from McGill, Western, and the Vancouver Academy of Music, where she studied with Gwen Thompson and Sonia Jelikova.
Hometown: Montreal, QC; Grande Prairie, AB
First season with the VS: 2001/02
Most memorable VS experience: There have been some very memorable experiences in the 15 years since I joined the VS. Highlights include: various concerti opportunities, sharing the stage in a fiddle duet with Natalie McMaster, and working on several occasions as acting concertmaster with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, when he was our principal guest conductor.
Hobbies and interests: cooking, baking, running, being outside with my kids!
Favourite things to do around the capital region: walking on the breakwater, hiking in Goldstream park, checking out the shops downtown on a sunny afternoon, running around with the kids at Saxe Point.
