About the soloist
Recognized as "one of Canada's leading trumpet and cornet players" 
(International Trumpet Guild), Frédéric Demers combines dazzling virtuosity 
with impeccable musicianship. Demers founded Trio Débonnaire, a brass 
ensemble dedicated to classical repertoire. He is also a founding member of 
Quintette de Cuivres IMPACT (1994) and, in 2007, he joined the dynamic sextet 
Magnitude6 which performs original compositions.

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.

About the Montreal Chamber Orchestra
The Montreal Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1974 by its Artistic Director 
and Conductor, Wanda Kaluzny. Under her leadership the MCO has earned a 
reputation for excellence and has achieved international recognition: Korean 
tour including a television broadcast (1990-91); tour of Southeastern U.S.A. 
(Nov 1990); tour in California invited by Columbia Artist Management (Mar 
1992). The MCO was also honored to be the first Canadian Orchestra featured in 
two PBS programs produced by Vermont Public Television, which included the 
memorial concert entitled "Requiem for September 11". The Montreal Chamber 
Orchestra can be heard on the compact discs Suites for Strings and
