Trevor is an award-winning pianist, composer, and producer who excels at working with live orchestra as both a writer and orchestrator. He has worked extensively with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra and Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra (where he is currently composer in residence), specializing in creating syntheses across classical and contemporary genres. Trevor is a prolific song producer and is also a founding member of Smash Music Productions, an Emmy nominated team whose song albums for TV have reached number 1 worldwide on the itunes and billboard charts.

Adelaide is an aspiring public relations professional and has been studying at Steveston-London Secondary School for the past 5 years. Growing up with a musical background, she is a Royal Conservatory of Music piano graduate and has pursued piano ensemble since 2014. Her passion for the art of music grew immensely after her trip to NYC to perform in a piano trio. There, she discovered the chief element that made music so enjoyable: companionship. Those who we play music with not only instill life into the piece, but create everlasting memories to reminisce. Adelaide hopes others can also find an appreciation for music and more importantly the people they share their experiences with that makes life fruitful.



Born from a young age in the small city of Hong Kong, Chloe moved to Richmond at the tender age of 6 and decided to bury herself in books. 11 years later, she is proud to be RichCity Idol 2017’s co-host. Chloe loves to make jokes, even if they are at her expense, and especially enjoys making her friends cringe from her bad puns. You can bet that if you were to ask her about her year away at boarding school, she would tell you the stories about that hilarious thing she did with her friends... when they went to that place…. good times.
