Roxi Dykstra has worked since 1999 as professional violist, pianist and in the last eight years, director.

Her solo, chamber and orchestral work has taken her across Canada and Europe.

Dykstra’s performance work in Italy earned her the highest possible recognition at the Conservatorio di Musica in Milan for solo and chamber music, and was awarded the highest performance degree in France with excellence in 2011.

She has been based in northern B.C. since September 2011 directing bands and choirs at Bulkley Valley Christian School, maintaining a busy private studio, and traveling many miles for her work as a solo and orchestral violist.

Dykstra is passionate about bringing musical quality and enthusiasm to B.C.’s north. She is active across the north as an adjudicator, conducts projects and workshops, and founded and co-directs the Orchestra North Summer Program that brings together musicians from across the north of BC to collaborate. Dykstra is pleased to return to the Nechako Valley.
