Lauded as “technically fearless with…an enormous, rich sound” (La Scena Musicale), pianist Michelle Cann made her orchestral debut at age 14 and has since performed as a soloist with numerous prominent orchestras. She is the recipient of the 2022 Sphinx Medal of Excellence, the highest honor bestowed by the Sphinx Organization. Cann’s Meany debut features a program of music by luminaries of Chicago’s Black Renaissance, including Hazel Scott, Nora Holt, Irene Britton Smith and others. A champion of the music of Florence Price, Cann also performs the composer’s Fantasies No. 1, 2 and 4.
