Each year CBC Music inducts 30 talented, young, Canadian classical artists into its '30 under 30' list. This year, seven Faculty of Music graduates (violinist Alice Hong, pictured, is also a current doctoral student) made it onto the list.
Congratulations to Alice Hong, violin, Julia Mirzoev, violin, Charles Sy, tenor, Jarred Dunn, piano, Simona Genga, mezzo-soprano, Emily Kruspe, violin, and Brayden Friesen, trombone, on this well-deserved recognition.
Before appearing on CBC's sixth annual list, many in Toronto's classical music community and beyond were well acquainted with these seven emerging stars who've won multiple awards - from the Faculty of Music's Norcop Prize in Song and Graduating Awards, to the COC CentreStage and Chopin International Competitions - and impressed audiences both at home and internationally.
