Kelvin Enns, viola (on leave)

Kelvin Enns was born in Calgary, Alberta and grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba. At the young age of 4 Kelvin began playing violin and changed to the viola at age 14. As a teenager Kelvin went on to win the Aikins Memorial Sr. Trophy at the Winnipeg Music Festival as well as playing occasionally with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. Kelvin was offered full scholarship to the University of Iowa under the direction of teacher William Preucil. During his time in Iowa Kelvin held a section viola position with the Cedar Rapids Symphony Orchestra.

In 1993 Kelvin went on to study with the renowned Dr. Francis Chaplin at Brandon University where he received his Bachelor of Music degree and was part of the Chaplin string quartet. He later studied with Gwen Hoebig, Karen Tuttle and Andre Roy. After his studies Kelvin moved to Toronto, where he held the Principal viola position in both the Oshawa Symphony Orchestra and The Toronto Philharmonia. Since this time Kelvin has also pursued his other musical passion, jazz guitar. Kelvin, his wife and their two children now call London, Ontario home. Kelvin is enjoying his fifth season with Orchestra London Canada as Principal Violist and teaching both viola and violin.
