Aside from a busy acting career spanning 50 years, on and off Broadway, the Stratford and Shaw Festivals, feature films, radio and television, Colin Fox made his concert debut in 1974 in the title role of Berlioz’ Lelio with the Toronto and Boston Symphonies under Seiji Ozawa. He has since appeared in Enoch Arden with pianist Anton Kuerti; as all the voices in L’Histoire du Soldat; Carnival of the Animals with duo pianists Anagnoson & Kinton; as the tortured husband in Tolstoy’s The Kreutzer Sonata which he edited to perform with the Penderecki Quartet; editing and reading the letters of Brahms and Dvorak in Giants in Music, Friends in Letters with the Gryphon Trio. He performed again with the Toronto Symphony under Sir Andrew Davis in Ray Luedeke’s Tales of the Netsilik. Mr. Fox wrote and narrated The Schumann Letters, which has been seen in 50 venues across Canada, prompting the violinist James Ehnes to comment: “The concept was fresh and the delivery impeccable.” He is the recipient of the Genie Award (1971) for Best Actor; the Anik award for Best Narration (Emily Carr, 1975); ACTRA and Andrew Allen awards for Best Performance in a radio drama (1980); a Juno Award (1994) for Best Children’s Recording for his title role in Tchaikovsky Discovers America. He credits his wife Carol for her inspiration and support in bringing Platero to a recording format.
