Announcing the appointment of pianist Stéphane Lemelin as Chair of Music Performance
Well-known to audiences across Canada as a soloist, chamber musician and recording artist, Stéphane Lemelin is equally reputed as a skilled university administrator, most recently as the Director of the School of Music at the University of Ottawa. He is also a dedicated pedagogue who has been teaching at university-level for 28 years and has given masterclasses around the world. Formerly a member of Trio Hochelaga, he is the Artistic Director of the Prince Edward County Music Festival, held in Ontario.
“It is exactly this combination of talents – a deep understanding of both the academic and the professional worlds – that makes his appointment as Chair of Music Performance such a coup for Schulich.”
Sean Ferguson, Dean of the Schulich School of Music.
