trevor-rines-headshotTrevor studied Astrophysics & Music at the University of Toronto & is now at Hart House Theatre, having also worked with the Ancient Comic Opera Company, Tapestry Opera, Frederick Harris Music, & as the Canadian Opera Company's Education & Outreach Coordinator. His speaking voice has been heard on JazzFM, the short animated film Wor(l)d, & most recently on the CBC TV documentary programme First Hand. He has the lowest singing voice you're ever likely to hear, is a composer, boardgame developer, & graphic designer, & is quoted in The Dictionary of Canadian Quotations. Having conducted & devoted four years to learning how to play every instrument of the orchestra poorly, he's decided that he actually plays the piano, flute, & especially the Renaissance bass gemshorn in his notorious quartet, The Gemsmen, with whom he performed the opening concert of the 2016 Belfountain Music Festival. Originally from Burlington, he lives in Toronto with his wife, Anne, & son, Malcolm. Last seen on this stage in 2016, narrating The Young Person's Guide to the Orchestra, he is delighted to be performing with Orchestra Toronto once again.
