Classic 107 - Winnipeg's classical and jazz radio station.

Joanne will be on Morning Light with host Michael Wolch to discuss the first concert of the season featuring pianist Avan Yu, and touch on the rest of their great season.

The Women’s Musical Club of Winnipeg, formed in 1894, is the oldest continuously operating musical organization in Winnipeg, and continues its long tradition of providing a stage for some of the talented young Canadian artists about to embark on an international career.

Their stage has been graced in the past by such stars as Amelita Galli-Curci (1920), Zara Nelsova (1945), Teresa Stratas (1963) and Anton Kuerti (1979) to name but a few. More recently we have recognized the talent of Jasper Wood, Susan Platts, Naida Cole and Denise Djokic. And we look forward to continuing the search for more of these Canadian treasures, and giving a Winnipeg audience the opportunity to experience their talent.

WMC also provides scholarships to promising young Manitoba musicians, a tradition first introduced in 1915. Their long list of scholarship winners includes such names as Keri-Lynn Wilson, Tracy Dahl and Valdine Anderson, all of whom are now performing internationally. In recent years the prizes have increased substantially. WMC now offers 6 annual scholarships totalling $11,500.

 

The first concert of the 2018/2019 takes place Sunday Oct 14th, and it features Canadian pianist Avan Yu. Check here for details about the concert and ticket information.
