Ryan Davis

Hailed as a “lovely violist” (The WholeNote), Ryan Davis is swiftly emerging as a singular creative voice. A sought-after artist in solo, chamber music, and orchestral performances, he finds himself seamlessly blending in between creative spaces. Ryan was named one of “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” by CBC Music in 2021. Some recent performance highlights include an appearance on NBA Champion and former Toronto Raptors player Serge Ibaka’s Instagram Live show, How Talented Are You?, and a featured performance of Christos Hatzis’s The Mega4 Meta4, as an invited soloist in the 21C Music Festival at The Royal Conservatory of Music. He had a solo concerto debut with Prairie Virtuosi in 2016, and has returned as a soloist in both 2017 and 2020. Ryan was selected by the Lucerne Festival Academy Orchestra as their principal violist for the 2017 summer festival, and was chosen as the principal violist of the Colburn Orchestra’s 2018 tour of Scotland and Ireland. He has performed as the principal violist of the Colburn Orchestra, and has concertized with the Colburn Chamber Music Society on multiple occasions.
