About The Performers
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.

The Kris Jay Duo
The Kris Jay Duo is Kris Jay Bowerman (trombone) and Stephen Robb (piano). Having performed together since 2012 in the Kris Jay Trio, Stephen and Kris provide a unique jazz experience by combining only the tenor trombone and the piano. The warm sound of the horn and the rich harmonies and energetic, rhythmic movement of the piano create a delightful listening experience.

For these pianists, it all began in Vancouver, where they met as participants in the same competition. Some conversations later, they realized two things about each other: that they’d be attending the same Conservatory a few months later, and that they didn’t despise each other at all! Come September, these great friends were coincidentally paired together to play as a piano duo in class—and quickly, what started as a school requirement morphed into something incredibly fun and worthwhile. The more they played together, the more they realized how contrasting their musical personalities were. This unlikely turn of events has pushed them out of their comfort zones and helped them play off of one another’s strengths. From that first moment, they felt a spark of connection, which grew into a flame. They present to you this burst of flame: La Fiammata.
