WAVERLEY: A musician from Waverley has earned a prestigious award nomination.

Barbara Hannigan was recently announced as a nominee for the 2019 Oskar Morawetz Award for Excellence in Music Performance.

The Oskar Morawetz Award for Excellence in Music Performance was established in June 2007 upon the death of composer Oskar Morawetz.

The award recognizes an outstanding Canadian performer or conductor in the field of classical music who has appeared on Canadian concert stages and may have reached a degree of international attention through appearances in other countries, and/or through broadcast and recordings.

In this context, “classical music” does not include music for choreography, electronic music, electro-acoustic music, television and film scores and non-European music.
