Contenders Among the Classics

UBC faculty up for national music awards.

Three UBC Music professors are nominees in two of Canada's premier music awards.

Prof. and pianist Rena Sharon's CBC CD Salon Parisien recorded with violinist Scott St. John was nominated in the Best Classical Album category of the Canadian Independent Music Awards. The second annual awards, or "Indies" as they are known in the industry, were presented at the ceremony in Toronto on Feb. 27, to kick off Canadian Music Week.

Prof. Andrew Dawes (violin) and Jane Coop (piano) join Diana Krall, Nelly Furtado and other Canadian and international artists, in being nominated for Juno Awards this year. Dawes and Coop's CD of the complete Beethoven Violin Sonatas on the Skylark label has been nominated in the Best Classical Album: Solo or Chamber Ensemble category. Coop's recording of English Piano Concerti with the CBC Radio Orchestra has been nominated in the Best Classical Album: Large Ensemble or Soloist(s) with Large Ensemble Accompaniment category.

The 2002 Juno Awards will be telecast from St. John's, Newfoundland, on April 14 on CTV.
