Dianne Werner, piano
After initial training at The Royal Conservatory with Margaret Parsons-Poole, Dianne Werner continued her studies with Peter Katin, György Sebök and Alicia de Larrocha. She went on to win a number of major prizes in the Young Keyboard Artists Association Competition in the United States and the Silver Medal at the prestigious Viotti-Valsesia International Piano Competition in Italy. Dianne also received a number of major awards in Canada, including three Canada Council Grants and a Floyd Chalmers award from the Ontario Arts Council. An exceptional soloist, accompanist and chamber musician, her collaborations include a national tour and recordings with soprano Nancy Argenta and a wide array of performances with the principal players of the Toronto Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, and the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra. Acclaimed for her lyrical and poetic style she has given solo and concerto performances across Canada. She is a faculty member of The Royal Conservatory of Music.
