Regina Musical Club - David Potvin, Piano
- Friday, November 25 - 7:30pm
Regina Musical Club presents the second concert of their 2022-2023 season, David Potvin, piano at the Shu-Box Theatre.
Montréal based pianist David Potvin is quickly establishing himself as an exciting performer of contemporary repertoire. As winner of the 2022 Eckhardt-Gramatté competition, he will be touring Canada in the fall of 2022 with a program of all Canadian contemporary repertoire. Other recent concerts include a recital with violinist Martin Beaver that included the world premiere of Stewart Grant’s Violin Sonata, and a recital in collaboration with the Canadian Music Centre celebrating the works of Quebec composer Jacques Hétu. In the spring of 2022, David and composer Edward Enman wrapped up recording of the composer’s music for piano four hands, and the album, Breathe In, Breathe Out, will release in the fall of 2022.
David’s other performance awards include prizes at the 2018 Shean and 2017 Stepping Stone competitions. In 2020 he received his Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Toronto, where he studied with acclaimed pedagogue Marietta Orlov and won the DMA recital competition.
A passionate music educator, David teaches piano in both of Canada’s official languages and is a member of the Royal Conservatory of Music’s prestigious college of examiners. In his spare time, he enjoys watching soccer, cooking, exploring Montréal, and trying to keep up with his newborn son.
