Polly Cornelius and Victoria Fischer Faw featured on Canadian Radio
Polly Cornelius, soprano, and Victoria Fischer Faw, piano, were featured on June 25 on Ontario Canada's radio station, FM 98.5, which serves the Waterloo Region and surrounding area.
"Four Dickinson Songs" by Lori Laitman (extracted from the newly released cd WILD SONGS) were played during "The Women in Music" radio series. "The Women in Music" shows can be heard on the first and third Monday of each month from 9:00 to 11:00 pm EST on the FM 98.5 dial or online at: www.ckwr.com. The recording was chosen by Tom Quick, a classical music aficionado who has been hosting and producing radio since 1975, beginning at Brisbane, Australia’s public broadcasting network 4MBS and now at Waterloo, Ontario. Quick started the Women in Music radio series, which showcases the talents of female composers, vocalists and instrumentalists, in March 2008. Canada’s most celebrated composers and pianists – to name just a few. “What’s so impressive about women in music today is not only their international prominence, but they are involved in a wide-range of activities, including concert performer, recording artist, educator, arts administrator, artistic director and cultural entrepreneur,” says Quick. “They are musical powerhouses.”
