Vanessa Rodrigues

Vanessa Rodrigues is one of Canada's premier young jazz organists, based in Montreal, Québec. She appears frequently with her own groups and as a side musician at Canadian jazz venues and festivals, and has toured overseas in Europe and Japan.

Vanessa was born in 1978 in Edmonton, Alberta. She began playing piano at age 5, and then became fascinated with the pipe organ at age 8. However, due to very limited access to organs, piano remained her main instrument for a long time. In addition to piano, she also played double bass and viola for several years, taking advantage of the many unique educational and travel opportunities presented to her through the Edmonton Public Schools String Program.
