By François Côté

Canadian Piano Quartet
Sunday, September 15, 7:30pm
Festival Theatre, Wolfville

The Canadian Piano Quartet is the coming together of two of the finest piano duos of our time, the Duo Turgeon and the Bergmann Duo. Both husband and wife duos are regarded as global leaders of the multi-piano genre. They have established enviable world-wide reputations through hundreds of concerts and multiple recordings resulting in dozens of prestigious prizes and broadcasts throughout the world. Up to forty fingers tickling the ivory with virtuosity !

From September 2019 to April 2020, the APAS will present nine events: seven world-class concerts and two award-winning plays!

Before the end of 2019, the APAS presents three more performances: percussionist Beverley Johnston and violinist Marc Djokic come together for a masterful collaboration. Then, Artistic Fraud Theatre of Newfoundland sets up at Festival Theatre in November, for one performance of Between Breaths, a wonderful and memorable play. On December 7, the indigenous singer, pianist, and composer Jeremy Dutcher, winner of numerous awards for his remarkable recording Wolastoqiyik Lintuwakonawa, performs at Convocation Hall in what will be a highlight of the Series.
