Josephine van Lier

January 10, 2022

A versatile musician and educator, Josephine van Lier is equally at ease on historic instruments as on their contemporary counterparts. She, therefore, covers a wide variety of repertoire utilizing the endless possibilities that this range of instruments, string set-ups and bows allow her. Founding member and artistic director of Early Music Alberta, Josephine van Lier is a strong advocate for the historically informed performance practise of early music. Josephine thoroughly enjoys teaching cello, baroque cello, viola da gamba, cello ensemble and viola da gamba consort out of her private studio. She is the recipient of the “Celebration of Women in the Arts Award” from the Edmonton Arts Council.
