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.
