Ruth Morawetz credits Western for having an enormous impact on building her career.
“I was challenged with the teaching and skills of faculty members who were excellent professional musicians,” says Morawetz.
Experienced in both classical and contemporary music, she has been a pianist for The National Ballet, Senior Accompanist at The Banff Centre’s Music Theatre, and lecturer at the University of Toronto’s Faculty of Music.
Morawetz has excelled as a collaborative pianist, working with many distinguished musicians and actors, including Maureen Forrester, Martha Henry, Ben Heppner, Adrianne Pieczonka, Louise Pitre, Rosemarie Landry, Mark Pedrotti, and Frances Ginzer.
Morawetz’s volunteer contributions are a testament to her dedication to the arts. She organized 178 Preview Lectures with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra; booked and chaired 88 programs for the Toronto Arts and Letters Club; coordinated the Jean A. Chalmers Awards for the Canada Opera; was a Board Member and Co-chair of the Rubies Award for Opera Canada Magazine; and has organized numerous fundraising galas over the years.
Recently she coordinated two very successful Don Wright Faculty of Music events in Toronto.
Morawetz has plans for the future; she hopes to create more musical theatre pieces, especially focusing on Canadian stories such as The Group of Seven and the life of Stephen Leacock.
