On Wednesday, January 12th, Ross Houston, beloved RWB Pianist, passed away. Mr. Houston was with the RWB for more than four decades, during which time he touched the lives of many. The RWB family has set aside this space to share their remembrances. Please check back often as it will continue to be updated as messages pour in.

“It is with shock, disbelief and sadness that we mark the passing of Ross Houston. Ross has been part of the RWB for over four decades, inspiring dancers and audiences alike through the piano. His commitment to music and to the RWB will not be forgotten.”
-André Lewis, RWB Artistic Director

“Ross Houston was a pianist with Royal Winnipeg Ballet for the last 44 years. He was an outstanding, well respected musician capable of playing any kind of repertoire. His rehearsal playing was superb, sensitive to the needs of the dancers and true to intentions of the composers. He had a special ability for playing wonderful ballet classes where his own sense of style and never-ending repertoire was admired by many. He worked with many singers and choirs giving them all a solid musical support. Live music was the most important thing to him. He put his influence on generations of dancers, fellow musicians and singers. We will miss him dearly. To us he was and always will be
Mr. Perfect.”
-Tadeusz Biernacki, RWB Music Director & Conductor Read more »
