Maya Tomes

Maya started playing violin when she was four years old, joining the NSCE seven years ago. This is her third year in the Senior ensemble. Her favourite experiences include the annual performances on Galiano Island and the life-changing tour to China. She is a talented musician who sings and plays several instruments including the flute, violin, ukulele, guitar and slide whistle. Maya loves everything about the NSCE; the repertoire, the challenges and all the friends she's made.
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.”
