Amy Rose Nold has been playing since age 9 and professionally since age 20. She is incredibly diverse in the expression of her talent, and has played in multiple genres and venues since 1980 - including directing musical theatre for The Gaslight Follies in Dawson City Yukon and summer repertory theatre in Lindsay Ontario.
Her fine piano skills have graced fine-dining rooms in world class resorts including The Maui Westin and Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. She's played cocktail lounges in Coast Hotels from Edmonton to Nanaimo and points between. Her diversity has expressed itself in Jazz Vespers concerts and work over several years as a choral accompanist for the Pender Island Choral Society and church musician and choir director for The United Church of Brentwood Bay and Shady Creek on the Saanich peninsula near Victoria BC.
She is able to set the exact right tone for shadowy lounges, sunlit terraces, weddings and funerals, brings the joy of sing-along to retirement homes, and even offers sacred chant in sacred spaces. She has the capacity to translate from the written score to lively interpretation with true ease. She is an accomplished improviser in many styles and as well as being an avid singer, she's also a song-writer of songs that speak right to the heart of the human condition.
