About the Event
Ms. Cann is an internationally-renowned pianist, collaborator, and performer who began studying piano at the age of seven, placing in various state, national, and international competitions and making her orchestral debut at the age of 14. She has been invited to perform with many orchestras including the Florida Orchestra, Tampa Bay Symphony, Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra, and the Cleveland Institute of Music Symphony Orchestra, and worked with many esteemed artists who include world-renowned pianists Paul Schenly, Daniel Shapiro, Joela Jones, Sergei Babayan, Jerome Lowenthal and Richard Goode. In 2016, Michelle performed the New York premiere of Florence Price’s Piano Concerto in One Movement. She received a glowing review from The Boston Musical Intelligencer for this performance, reporting that “Michelle Cann, as the piano soloist, was a compelling, sparkling virtuoso, bringing this riveting work to life in its first New York performance.” Michelle Cann’s musical brilliance, skill, and integrity makes her one of the most trusted artists to breathe life into Florence Price’s long neglected work. We invite you to listen as we talk to Michelle about growing up in a musical family, her career from a child prodigy to an international musician, and her deep commitment to elevating the work of Florence Price and the next generation of artists.
