The Ladies’ Morning Musical Club presents

James Ehnes

“Playing of phenomenal control allied to musicianship of the highest order,” declared The Times of London about violinist James Ehnes. He has performed in over thirty countries on five continents, appearing regularly in the world’s great concert with many of the most celebrated orchestras. As an avid chamber musician, Ehnes tours with his string quartet, the Ehnes Quartet, and leads the winter and summer festivals of the Seattle Chamber Music Society, where he is Artistic Director. His many awards and prizes include the first-ever Ivan Galamian Memorial Award and the Virginia Parker Prize from the Canada Council for the Arts. In 2007 he became the youngest person ever elected as a Fellow to the Royal Society of Canada. In 2010 the Governor General of Canada appointed him a Member of the Order of Canada, and in 2013 he was named an Honorary Member of the Royal Academy of Music. Born in Brandon, Manitoba, Ehnes began studying his instrument at the age of four, and at thirteen had already made his professional orchestral debut with the Montreal Symphony. He plays the 1715 Marsick Stradivarius. 5th LMMC appearance.
