About the conductor
Born in Montreal, Wanda Kaluzny started her musical studies with lessons
in piano and organ. She began her conducting career at the age of 11
when she assumed the position of organist and choir director at the
Holy Cross Parish in Montreal, a position she held for eight years. A
year later at the age of twenty, she founded the Montreal Chamber
Orchestra making her at the time, the youngest and only woman conductor
of a professional Orchestra. Kaluzny's conducting studies include
working with Stefan Stuligrosz in Poland and with Charles Bruck at the
Pierre Monteux Memorial Foundation in the United States. She toured in
Europe as Maestro Bruck's assistant and also guest conducted in North
America and Europe. In April 1990, she was the first woman to guest
conduct the Baden-Baden Symphony in Germany.
