Congrats to Toronto-based pianist Christina Petrowska Quilico this week on being named Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.

The award for career achievement is Canada’s “highest honour an individual can achieve in the Arts, Social Sciences and Sciences.”

This is the fourth honour Petrowska Quilico has received within the past year.

In November 2020, she was appointed to the Order of Canada, “for her celebrated career as a classical and contemporary pianist and for championing Canadian music.”  This past spring, York University, where she is Professor of Musicology and Piano, announced her as one of York U’s esteemed Research Awards winners.  As well, CBC Radio 2 named her to the “In Concert Hall of Fame”, celebrating the greatest Canadian classical musicians of all time, past and present.
