2012 Ben Steinberg Musical Legacy Award
Meet this year's award winner, Lily Chapnik, at Temple Sinai

2012-05-07 14:37:13

Celebrate merit and music with a free performance by Lily Chapnik, winner of the 2012 Ben Steinberg Musical Legacy Award, on Wednesday May 16 at 8.00 p.m at Temple Sinai. 

Chapnik, a gifted 18-year-old Toronto clarinettist, is already the recipient of a number of awards and honours from organizations like McGill University, the Toronto Sinfonietta, the Royal Conservatory of Music, the Kiwanis Music Festival, the Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music and the Ontario Music Festival.  Lily is continuing her studies for a degree in Music at the Schulich School of Music at McGill University and performs as a soloist and chamber musician when her schedule allows.

With a strong Jewish background, both in education as a graduate of TanenbaumCHAT (Anne and Max Tanenbaum Community Hebrew Academy of Toronto) and in music, through the influence of a musical Israeli family, Lily has developed a love of serious music as well as Klezmer music, which she has studied at KlezKanada on scholarship.

The May 16th evening program includes the award presentation as well as a performance of Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet, especially arranged for clarinet soloist and a flute quartet consisting of Lily’s grandmother, renowned Israeli flautist Atarah Ben- Tovim, Western University professor (one of Lily’s McGill professors) Stephen Tam and two of his students.
