About the Performer

Ray Dudley was born in Bowmanville, Ontario. His mother was his first piano teacher, after which he became a student of Albert Guerrero at the Royal Conservatory of Music at the University of Toronto. Graduating with the Eaton Prize, he went on to become a prizewinner at the International Competition for Musical Performers in Geneva in 1952.

Ray Dudley has appeared at the London Promenade Concerts, with the London and New York Philharmonics, and with many other orchestras, under the baton of such conductors as Monteux, Sargent, Mehta, Schippers, Ancerl, and Susskind. As a professor at Indiana University, the College Conservatory, University of Cincinnati, and the University of South Carolina (Columbia), his thirty-five years of teaching have produced students who are now heads of music departments, piano departments, soloists, and prizewinners in the Unisted States, Canada, and South America.
