Season 4, Episode 2: Michelle Cann

We are thrilled to be joined today by pianist extraordinaire Michelle Cann! She has performed as a soloist with many of this country’s finest orchestras, including the Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras, and the Cincinnati, New Jersey, Atlanta, St. Louis, and Detroit Symphonies, among many others. We are beyond fortunate that she has managed to fit the Canton Symphony Orchestra into her busy schedule this year, joining us for our Masterworks concert on October 30th! A champion of the composer Florence Price, she gave both the New York and Philadelphia premieres of Price’s Piano Concerto in One Movement, and also recorded the work in a remarkable COVID-era recording session with the New York Youth Symphony. She earned her bachelor’s and master’s degrees right up the road from us at the Cleveland Institute of Music, then went on to pursue an Artist’s Diploma at Curtis, where she is now a member of the faculty.
