Cassandra Stinn has been entranced with the expressive capacity of the piano ever since she began lessons at age 7. Since the 2016 completion of her ARCT in piano performance, she has found her artistic voice creating ambient improvisational piano works using a mixture of solo piano, synths, and experimental instrumental arrangements.
Recent projects include "A Score for Lost Words", a 41-minute experimental soundtrack funded by a Saskatchewan Arts Board emerging artist grant. Cassandra is currently completing recording an EP of new solo piano pieces in collaboration with Rainy Day Recording Co that were commissioned by the Ness Creek Cultural and Recreational Society. Going into 2021 she is pleased to continue as Artist in Residence at Float Now, where she maintains an active float practice and wil be writing a new work for piano and strings. Cassandra's music has been used in several productions by Saskatoon's Free Flow Dance Theatre Company.
Cassandra Stinn is the co-owner and program manager of the Saskatoon Academy of Music, past-president of the Saskatoon Music Festival Committee, and has been a piano teacher for fifteen years. In addition to working with her studio, Cassandra organizes and hosts various workshops and community events through the Academy including the Academy choir, various rhythm workshops, student masterclasses, and an annual spring Academy music festival.
Cassandra’s other creative projects include being the mother of her one-year-old daughter Lilith, collaborative performances and composition with her husband Jesse Davis Selkirk in their hitherto unreleased project Spiritseed, and active work as an acroyoga performer and choreographer as 50% of the performance art duo Helika.
