Canada Council Instrument Bank Competition Winner!

Last week I spent a surreal time in Toronto, Ontario as a participant in the Canada Council Instrument Bank Competition.  Being invited to compete with some of Canada’s finest young musicians for the use of rare and unique instruments was an honor and a great pleasure.  I am pleased to announce that I have been granted the use of the Newland Johannes Franciscus Celoniatus cello, built in 1730 in Turin, Italy.  I’m thrilled to be able to make music with this instrument that is so rich in character for the next three years! A huge thank you to the Canada Council and the team at Heinl’s for their encouragement and support!
