A graduate of the Brandon University Jazz Studies program, freelance pianist Alanna Fast can be heard playing in a variety of musical settings and styles in Winnipeg’s music scene, ranging from jazz, to Afro-Cuban, to classical choral accompanying. Alanna can regularly be heard as the keyboardist for Impressions Jazz Group, an ensemble performing a unique mix of jazz inspired by music traditions from around the world.
During this year’s festival, Alanna will be performing solo piano at JazzFest x CMHR, drawing heavy inspiration from the melody and harmony of players such as Bill Evans and Herbie Hancock.
