Bergmann Piano Duo bring American Stories to LCMS

First Rose Gellert Hall concert of the season set for Saturday, Sept. 29

The Langley Community Music School presents American Stories, a programme by the renowned Bergmann Piano Duo, at the season’s first Rose Gellert Hall series concert at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29.

With 2018 marking the centenary of legendary American composer, Leonard Bernstein, the Bergmann Piano Duo will be celebrating with a concert that features his most well-known work, West Side Story. Bernstein’s close friend, Aaron Copland and his evocative El Salon Mexico will be featured as well. The evening will also include specially-arranged works from the Bergmann’s latest CD, American Stories, by Chick Corea, Astor Piazzolla, Pat Metheny and Egberto Gismonti.

“Undoubtedly, Bernstein was one of the most influential and versatile musicians of the 20th Century, as conductor, classical and jazz pianist, composer, arranger and educator,” said LCMS artistic director and Bergmann Duo pianist, Elizabeth Bergmann.

“All of the works we are performing are arranged for two pianos exclusively by Marcel. We look forward to sharing this special programme with the Langley audience.”

The Bergmann Duo have touched and inspired audiences with their uniquely eclectic programs for more than two decades. As international prize-winners, including the Dranoff International Two Piano Competition and Provincia di Caltanisetta International Chamber Music Competition, they have performed in recital and with orchestras across North America and Europe, including recent appearances in Munich and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Marcel and Elizabeth Bergmann are Directors at the Langley Community Music School.

“The electrifying and inspirational Bergmann Piano Duo will certainly delight audiences with their programme, American Stories,” said LCMS principal, Carolyn Granholm

“2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Langley Community Music School. To celebrate, we have dedicated the 2018-19 season to a lineup of highly acclaimed performers who all have a strong connection to the school. We invite the community to celebrate with us.”

Tickets are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors, $18 for students and $10 for LCMS students. Call the box office at 604-534-2848 or visit langleymusic.com to purchase.
