Composers / Writers: Fiona Wilkinson
Fiona Wilkinson is an Associate Professor of Flute and Chamber Music at the University of Western Ontario's Don Wright Faculty of Music. A former Chair of the Music Performance Studies department, she is currently division co-ordinator for winds, brass and percussion as well as a co-director of the MPS chamber ensemble program.
Ms. Wilkinson is a founding member of the Aeolian Wind Quintet and Triptych, which have toured extensively throughout Canada, the United States and the Far East. She has been the recipient of numerous awards for career development from the Ontario Arts Council as well as an active commissioner of Canadian compositions. As a freelancer, Fiona has worked with the Toronto Symphony, New Music Concerts - Toronto, the Canadian Opera Co., the Hamilton Philharmonic, and the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestras. A UWO Academic Development Award enabled Prof. Wilkinson to continue research into the electronic manipulation of the flute's technique through the use of synthesis and samplers. This has been a welcome addition to her involvement with classical, jazz and modern composition.*
