Bev Ross, composer and songwriter
     
About Bev Ross
A working musician since her teens, Bev is a composer and songwriter whose scores and songs have been featured in TV and radio broadcasts and on concert, theatre and festival stages across the country. Bev's interest in the harp as a tool for providing comfort and supporting healing has grown out of her lifelong commitment to the power of music to move us physically, emotionally and spiritually.

As a songwriter, Bev has performed at many festivals, concerts and clubs, ranging from the Edmonton Folk Music Festival main stage to the Winnipeg Folk Festival. Her work in theatre includes composing songs and score, and providing musical direction for many productions with companies like Workshop West and Theatre Network. Among Bev's commissions, those for national broadcast on CBC include Sesame Street and Sunday Morning.

Bev is Alberta's first certified therapeutic harp practitioner. She graduated in 2006 from the International Harp Therapy Program, a training program that was at that time based at the renowned San Diego Hospice. For 10 years Bev brought therapeutic music to patients at the Cross Cancer Institute, and developed and facilitated the first therapeutic harp circles in Canada for cancer patients. She is currently a staff musician at the
University of Alberta Hospital.
