Brooke Day

Brooke Day was born in Lethbridge and began his violin studies with Norbert Boehm when he was 5. After high school he went to study music at the University of British Columbia. It was during this period that Brooke discovered the viola and his love of sushi. When he finished his 4 year degree in 5 years he worked on cruise ships for two summers. Once back in Lethbridge he honed his teaching skills at the very building where he himself learned to hold the bow, the University of Lethbridge Conservatory. While here Brooke formed a friendship with international viola soloist, Rivka Golani. Rivka invited Brooke to study with her in England. He won his Masters in viola performance at the Birmingham City University and then moved to London to start his freelance career. Brooke was a member of the group “Pluck”, a classical music, comedy trio. Since being in England, Brooke has had the good fortune to perform in Singapore, Malaysia, India, Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, not to mention all over the UK. Brooke is very proud to be playing in his hometown in front of his friends and family. He is very pleased to welcome his new nephews Cooper and Dixon to this wonderful world.
