About The Meeks Duo
Married Vancouver-based pianists Scott Meek and Clare Yuan are The Meeks Duo, an acclaimed four-hands piano duo whose aim is to make every performance a uniquely enjoyable experience. Already well-established performers in Canada, Scott and Clare recently made their Asian debut with concerts in Japan and Taiwan, including at the prestigious Taiwan National Concert Hall. During the first phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, they performed 22 weekly online concerts from their home from March to August 2020.
Scott maintains a busy schedule as one of the most in demand collaborative pianists and chamber musicians in Greater Vancouver. He has performed concertos with major orchestras in Canada, and is a top prizewinner in several national and international competitions in North America. Scott received a Doctor of Music degree from Indiana University and also studied at the Oberlin Conservatory. His principal teachers were Menahem Pressler, Alvin Chow, and Carole Pollard.
Clare runs a full studio of eager and talented students, who are inspired by her innovative teaching style and frequent performing opportunities. She has won scholarships and made her debut as a soloist in New York City, and as a conductor in Vancouver in 2013. Clare received a Master of Music degree from the Manhattan School of Music. She also studied at UBC and University of Victoria. Her principal teachers were Jane Coop, Arkady Aronov, Eva Solar-Kinderman, and Christine Eschman.
Scott and Clare combined musical forces shortly after they got married in 2013. They love the unique closeness of two musicians sharing a single instrument, and are happy to share this love with you!

Our Community Partner for this highlight is
Kay Meek Youth Conservatory
The Kay Meek Youth Conservatory intensive sets each actor/student on a learning path that encourages them to excel as young artists and ensemble members. The creative teams will develop an individualized program for each student that showcases their strengths and encourages growth in other areas of their craft. Students will be paired with a character, or set of characters, and corresponding tracks. This process focuses on the development of their skills in dance, voice and acting, as well as leadership and teamwork.
This year the Senior Program will be presenting High School Musical and has two programs to enter, the Musical Theatre Intensive (Auditioned program) & the Musical Theatre Ensemble (First Come, First Serve). The Junior Program is presenting Dear Edwina Jr.
