With special appearances by faculty members Phil Dwyer, Chris Davis, and Hans Verhoeven and Alex Coleman!

On Dec. 30, 2013 Phil Dwyer was appointed as a Member of the Order Of Canada. He was cited for “his contributions to jazz as a performer, composer and producer, and for increasing access to music education in his community.” In January 2015 he was recognized by the Royal Conservatory of Music as an Honorary Fellow. These distinctions arise from an illustrious thirty year career collaborating with a storied roster of great musical artists, crossing stylistic and geographic borders.

Phil has appeared on eleven Juno Award-winning recordings, and over thirty nominated recordings. He is also a recipient of the prestigious K.M. Hunter Prize, for excellence in the arts. He has performed on over 200 recordings and performed at some of the most prestigious venues and festivals in over 30 countries on four continents.

In addition to his career as a performing and recording musician, Phil is a practicing lawyer, a community leader and philanthropist, he curates “Phil Dwyer’s Jazz Canada” for CBC Radio Music, and is a partner in SeaWind Musical Instruments.
