Carolyn Gadiel Warner
CAROLYN GADIEL WARNER is a native of Winnipeg, Canada and began her musical studies with her mother at the piano at age three. Later taking up the violin, she graduated from the Royal Conservatory of Music of Toronto in both instruments and earned Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degrees in piano and violin respectively. Her post-graduate education includes three years at the Paris Conservatory of Music under Canada Council and French Government scholarships from which she graduated with a First Prize in violin and chamber music in 1975. Before joining the violin and keyboard sections of The Cleveland Orchestra in 1979, where she now holds the Marc Swartzbaugh endowed assistant Keyboard Chair, Ms. Warner served for four years in both capacities with the Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra under the direction of Michael Tilson Thomas. She has performed on numerous occasions as piano soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra, and as a member of the keyboard section is called upon to perform on the piano, celesta, harpsichord, organ, harmonium and synthesizer. Ms. Warner is a founding member of The Cleveland Duo with her husband, violinist Stephen Warner, and of The Cleveland Duo and James Umble, noted classical saxophonist. Both groups tour actively as concert performers and artists in education in major venues, temples and learning institutions throughout North America and abroad. Their recent tour of Australia in September 2012 included concerts, classes, workshops and lectures at both the Sydney and Queensland (Brisbane) Conservatoria. They have been profiled in Strad Magazine, The Saxophone Journal, the Cleveland Plain Dealer and a well-known book entitled Making Your Way in Music by Nancy Uscher. Ms. Warner has transcribed numerous musical scores of Ravel, Bartok, Prokofiev, Piazzolla, Gershwin, Satie, Bloch, John Adams and Darius Milhaud, among others, for the trio and has secured exclusive performance and recording rights to these adaptations. She can be heard with both ensembles on the Cappella, Dana, Klavier and now Centaur labels in a CD which has just been released in January of 2012. Ms. Warner was appointed to the CIM faculty in 1987 and has become, in fall 2013, the Director of the CIM Preparatory Chamber Music Department.
