Conservatory Canada honours Gwen Beamish with 2011 Honourary Licentiate Diploma

LONDON, ON, Nov. 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Conservatory Canada is pleased to announce the awarding of its 2011 Honourary Licentiate Diploma to pianist and pedagogue, Gwen Beamish.

Beamish will be on hand to accept the honour at this weekend's fall convocation, held November 19 in London, Ontario. Fellow pianist, John Paul Bracey, will deliver the citation.

"Gwen's dedication to young Canadian pianists and her distinguished career as both a teacher and performer deserve recognition," says Conservatory Canada national executive director, Victoria Warwick.

"I know many of her students personally, and they adore her. They continue to go back for occasional lessons for their entire lives, and often take their own students to her for lessons from time to time. Her compassion for her students and her passion for teaching are exemplary."

Conservatory Canada has conferred an annual Honourary Licentiate Diploma since 1988. Beamish joins a distinguished list of past honourees, which includes Maureen Forrester (2010), Robert Murray Gordon McConnell (2009), Senator Tommy Banks (2008), Jeff Healey (2007) and Mary Lou Fallis (2006).
