Don Anderson is an internationally recognized advocate of classical music. He has more than 30 years’ experience in celebrating it through print, radio and teaching. He is the author, publisher and distributor of the best-selling book Tuning the Forks: A Celebration of the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra. It has been hailed as “the best book on music-making in Canada (and for that matter, much wider afield) that I’ve ever read, and a serious work of art in itself.” – Bramwell Tovey. Don has written more than 125 seasons’ worth of program notes and feature articles for 20 orchestras, chamber ensembles and schools throughout North America, and as far afield as the United Kingdom and Switzerland.
Don has taught continuing education courses in music appreciation at the University of Winnipeg and the Manitoba Conservatory of Music and Arts (MCMA), has given illustrated presentations for Manitoba Opera and the Asper Jewish Community Campus, and served as archivist for the Manitoba Composers Association.
