After completing her studies on the recorder at the Utrecht Conservatory in Holland, Femke Bergsma established herself in Montreal. She worked initially as an assistant for recorder maker Jean-Luc Boudreau, and soon started performing with several ensembles. These include Les Boréades de Montréal, Clavecin en Concert, Les Idées Heureuses, Thirteen Strings Chamber Orchestra in Ottawa and Tafelmusik in Toronto. Later, her interest in medieval music led her to study the vielle as well as voice. She performs with diverse medieval ensembles in Montreal as well as in Quebec City and is part of Les Reverdies de Montréal, who organize Montreal’s Journées Médiévales. She founded the ensemble Eya with viellist Liette Remon and has been part of the creation of the children’s theater show Glouglou from Le Théâtre de Quartier. She teaches at Cammac Music Centre’s summer camp, among others.
