historically informed performance practice. Josh completed his BMus at the University of Victoria, where
he studied classical viola with Joanna Hood and thrived in chamber music with guidance from the
Lafayette String Quartet. Josh then received his MMus and Professional Studies Certificate at the
Manhattan School of Music, where he studied with Karen Ritscher. Since the pandemic, Josh has

in love with the flute, graduating from the University of Regina (Saskatchewan) in June

under the tutelage of Marie-Noelle Berthelet (Regina Symphony Orchestra). She
completed her first master’s degree in flute performance at the University of Manitoba,

1913,” which can be found in the UofM music library, highlighted the lesser-known solo
flute words of that time. Jensen graduated from the University of British Columbia with a
MA in music theory (2020), focusing in performance analysis of late Classical and early
Romantic music in tempo fluctuations at deceptive and evaded cadential passages,
under the tutelage of Dr. Ève Poudrier and Dr. Alan Dodson. Her thesis titled
“Comparison of Performed Tempo Changes at Deceptive and Evaded Cadences” is
published in the UBC cIRcle academic journal in Electronic Theses and Dissertations
(ETDs) 2008+.
Mikyla is known for her smile and positivity, alongside her natural musicality and
shaping in music performance. She maintains a busy performance career, specializing
