Acadia Performing Arts Series Opens September 20 with Duo Turgeon

The Acadia Performing Arts Series presents Duo Turgeon on Saturday, September 20 at 7:30pm at Festival Theatre (504 Main St, Wolfville). The concert is presented by Michelin Canada.

Canadian pianists Anne Louise-Turgeon and Edward Turgeon have been performing professionally since 1996. Critically acclaimed as one of the top piano duos of our time, the Turgeons have given hundreds of performances, including the Concertgebouw of Amsterdam, and the Weill Recital Hall in New York. Recent engagements include a repeat visit to the San Francisco International Music Festival and a U.S. State Department Fulbright-sponsored visit to Europe for special performances and masterclasses.

Their Wolfville program features composers from the 19th and 20th centuries including:

Johannes Brahms: Variations on a Theme by Haydn, Op. 56b for two pianos

Felix Mendelssohn: Andante and Allegro Brillant, Op. 92

Maurice Ravel: Second Suite from the Ballet Daphnis and Chloe
