Aliya Dervisevic

Aliya has been playing the violin for 9 years since she was 5, and has been with the NSCE for the past 5 years. Her favourite thing about NSCE is playing a genre of music that isn’t classical. Her favourite NSCE memories are the trips to Bowen Island and last year’s Centennial concert. Other than the violin, she has dabbled in ukulele and also enjoys skiing. She is also with the Royal Conservatory of Music, where she has gained experience in classical violin. Aliya is very grateful for the opportunities that the Senior group has offered.
About Us
  • “… this music that reaches out to each and every tired body in a concert hall is miraculous in its ability to strip away all modern day distractions and give the gift of spiritual renewal. From toddler to wizened fiddler, the children of the North Shore Celtic Ensemble entrance them, lead them and me into motion, physically vibrating with each rollicking and melancholy tune, and send us out into the evening air with a shared confidence that life is good ... from humble beginnings to gala events…the North Shore Celtic Ensemble ... can give much more than it takes.”
