Her Honour Elizabeth Dowdeswell welcomed us to the Lieutenant Governor of Ontario’s suite on February 7, 2022.
Bella Czyrnyj, 2022-2023 WMCT University of Toronto Graduate Fellowship recipient, opened the reception with a performance of Hommage a M. de Falla by Béla Kovács for solo clarinet. After welcoming remarks from the Lieutenant Governor, and the current and past WMCT presidents, Michael Bridge, 2021 WMCT Career Development Award recipient played a brief solo accordion recital. He included a “musical game,” challenging us to identify tunes from repertoire created around the time of the WMCT’s founding. We did well.
