Guest Speaker: Q&A with Piano Star Angela Hewitt - April 19, 2021

One of the most famous classical pianists in the world and recipient of numerous honours, including the Order of Canada (CC) and Order of the British Empire (OBE), Angela Hewitt is a fellow Canadian with deep connections to Italy. In addition to having performed and recorded for over 40 years throughout Italy, she is the artistic director of the Trasimeno Music Festival, which she founded in 2005. Her very deep attachment to Fazioli grand pianos, crafted in northeastern Italy, was also demonstrated in a series of tumultuous events and emotions during the first year of the pandemic (read The Guardian's account here).

The Q&A session will be moderated over Zoom by Rome-based Canadian foreign correspondent Megan Williams. Please send your questions in advance so that Megan can streamline the organization of this interview with Maestra Hewitt.

Time: 6 p.m. Rome time
Where: on Zoom.
Cost: free
