Duo Turgeon

April 5, 2016 brings our final piano concert of the season as well as our final contemporary classics instalment this year.

Dr. Edward Turgeon and Dr. Anne Louise-Turgeon are the married pianists who form Duo Turgeon. The Duo is Algoma University’s Artist-In-Residence and individually they both teach at the Algoma Conservatory and at Algoma University. Previously they were on the faculty and ensemble-in- residence at Florida Atlantic University’s Dorothy F. Schmidt College of Arts and Letters in Boca Raton, Florida.

Anne is originally from Montreal and Edward from Toronto. They have played together since 1988, moving to the professional side of performance as a duo in 1994. They have been married for over 25 years.

Add in performances around the world and seven CDs and you have a pair who have been quite busy over the years! To read more about them, visit their website at http://duoturgeon.com/index.html
