(Class of '67) Janina Fialkowska - Concert Pianist
Janina Fialkowska is a world-class concert pianist. In 2002 her performing and recording career was dealt a severe blow when a malignant tumor was removed from her left arm. Janina marshaled her courage and continued performing music written for one-handed pianists.
In 2003 she underwent a second round of reconstructive surgery, where muscles from her back were used to replace those in her damaged arm.
At a gala recital in February 2004, Janina resumed her international career, performing as a two-handed pianist.
