About the soloist
Georde Gao is considered as one of the most exciting, innovative and respected 
erhu masters today. His performance on April 16 marks his first appearance 
with the Montreal Chamber Orchestra.

About the conductor
Born in Montreal, Wanda Kaluzny started her musical studies with lessons in 
piano and organ. She began her conducting career at the age of 11 when she 
assumed the position of organist and choir director at the Holy Cross Parish 
in Montreal, a position she held for eight years. A year later at the age of 
twenty, she founded the Montreal Chamber Orchestra making her at the time, the 
youngest and only woman conductor of a professional Orchestra. Kaluzny's 
conducting studies include working with Stefan Stuligrosz in Poland and with 
Charles Bruck at the Pierre Monteux Memorial Foundation in the United States. 
She toured in Europe as Maestro Bruck's assistant and also guest conducted in 
North America and Europe. In April 1990, she was the first woman to guest 
conduct the Baden-Baden Symphony in Germany.

The Montreal Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1974 by its Artistic Director

tour including a television broadcast (1990-91); tour of Southeastern U.S.A. 
(Nov 1990); tour in California invited by Columbia Artist Management (Mar
