Maddison Wilkey


Maddison Wilkey, age 15, started playing violin when she was three. She currently studies violin with David McFadden, concertmaster of Huronia Symphony Orchestra and previous concertmaster of the TSO. Maddison also studies piano under the guidance of Alison Bell and has successfully completed advanced Royal Conservatory of Music theory courses under the direction of Joe Ringhofer.

Maddison is currently a first violinist with Huronia Symphony Orchestra and is grateful to have had the opportunity to perform under the baton of Oliver Balaburski. She played as part of the youth program for two years before being welcomed as a full time member in 2022-2023.

Maddison enjoys performing at the Braestone Artisan Market, and the Woods Park Retirement Residence, and has been honoured to share her music at numerous private events. 

Maddison competed in the Barrie Kiwanis Music Festival and the South Simcoe Arts Council Festival this year where she received the award for most outstanding string player from both festivals. She received multiple nominations, in both piano and violin, recommending her to the Ontario Music Festival Association Competition this season.

In addition to studying violin and piano, Maddison thrives in karate, highland dancing, and singing. She enjoys boating on Georgian Bay, training her pups and spending time with her friends and family.  

Maddison balances her many interests and embraces all new challenges with creativity, enthusiasm and a positive mindset.
