Evan Barber

Evan began his violin studies at age three under Philip Kashap. He has been a member of various groups, including the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, Amati String Quartet, and Saskatoon Symphony. He has been broadcast on CBC radio, and has performed in Italy and across Canada with these ensembles. Outside of music, he has degrees in biochemistry and medicine, and is currently doing general surgery residency at the U of S. On the side, he still enjoys performing with the symphony, Prairie Virtuosi, and other groups. A recent highlight was performing Bartok’s first string quartet, which he can now scratch off his bucket list.
