Glen Montgomery return to the Comox Valley

Canadian pianist, Glen Montgomery, is returning to the Comox Valley, where he will once again inspire and delight his audiences with his brilliant piano playing.

After great success as a music teacher, primarily at the University of Lethbridge but also at the University of Ottawa, Mount Royal and the Banff Centre, Montgomery is now pursuing exclusively his performing and composing careers.

Over the years Montgomery’s concerts have taken him from Australia to Iceland and from Carnegie Hall to Philharmonic Hall in St. Petersburg. A regular at the Festival of the Sound, he has performed with the likes of Denis Brott, Carol Neblett, the Orford Quartet, Toronto Symphony, James Campbell and Jose Luis Garcia.

He has broadcast and recorded hundreds of performances for CBC, PBS, Belorus TV and Analekta.

Why does Glen Montgomery, a world-renowned concert pianist, return every year to the Comox Valley, to perform concerts, give public masterclasses and offer private lessons to young piano students?

When asked this question, he talks about the rich musical culture in the Comox Valley and how his energy is renewed by the audiences and the young music students he encounters.

Several local students he has worked with in the past years have gone on to study with him in Lethbridge and are now enjoying successful musical careers of their own. Montgomery’s award-winning students include Sarah Hagen, Graeme Roset, Jan Lisiecki, Stephen Nguyen and Magdalena von Eccher. He resides in Montreal with his wife, Magdalena von Eccher.

This Nov. 12th, Montgomery will be performing an exciting program including works by Bach, Schumann and Bartok. His concerts are always inspiring and this one will surely delight students and adults alike.

Come along and join us for an enjoyable afternoon of piano classics, performed by concert pianist Glen Montgomery.

His concert will be held at the North Island College Stan Hagen Theatre on Sunday Nov. 12 at 2:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, $20 for seniors and $15 for students and are available at Laughing Oyster Books in Courtenay and Blue Heron Books in Comox.
