Biography

Carmen Fast Hollett’s love for accompanying began in grade 8 when she auditioned for her High School music teacher Larry Nickel. Completing her ARCT (Royal Conservatory of Music Toronto) at age 18, she went on to receive her B.A. in music from Trinity Western University, and M.Mus from California State University Los Angeles.

Currently on the faculty at TWU in the School of the Arts, Media and Culture (SAMC), Carmen frequently collaborates with musicians and choral ensembles across the Lower Mainland.

She has acted as rehearsal accompanist for conductors Bramwell Tovey, Jon Washburn, Larry Nickel, Calvin Dyck, Wes Janzen and Joel Tranquilla.

Carmen calls Abbotsford her home, along with her husband Rodney and three children: Jack, Sam and Lucy.
