Violinist Lara St. John Named to the Order of Canada

The 49-year-old Canadian violinist received the honor for “pushing the boundaries of classical interpretation as a solo violinist and for supporting diversity in the arts”

According to the website of the Canadian Governor General, Julie Payette, "the Order honours people whose service shapes our society; whose innovations ignite our imaginations; and whose compassion unites our communities."

St. John has performed as a soloist with orchestras around the world and runs her own record label, Ancalagon, which she founded in 1999.

Her album entitled “Mozart,” recorded with her brother Scott St. John and The Knights, won a Juno Award in 2011.

"I am really honoured by this appointment and I’m thrilled to join this incredible group of fellow Canadians," St. John told The Violin Channel.
