Jane Coop has played in over twenty countries in such eminent halls as the Bolshoi Hall in St. Petersburg, the Kennedy Center, Alice Tully Hall and Roy Thomson Hall. In her own country of Canada, she has given concerts from North to south: Whitehorse (Yukon) and Niagara Falls (ON), and from west to east: Tofino (BC) and St. John’s (Nfld) and many cities, towns and communities in between. She is in fact one of the few who has remained a resident of Canada through-out her career.

At the age of nineteen she won First Prize in the CBC’s national radio competition, and this, along with First Prize at the Washington International Competition, launched her career. In the early years she made recital debuts at Wigmore Hall and Carnegie Recital Hall (now called Weill Hall), and gave concerto performances with the Toronto Symphony, The Calgary Philharmonic , the Victoria Sympho-ny and the CBC Vancouver Orchestra. In 1976 she was invited to tour the New England States as soloist with Mario Bernardi and the National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada in Mozart’s Concerto in D minor, K.466.

In 2012, Jane was appointed to the Order of Canada, our country’s highest honour for lifetime achievement. She was also appointed to the Order of British Columbia in May, 2019.
