Not just sisters, but concert pianists and dedicated teachers, Michelle and Kimberly Cann have been making music together since childhood. Daughters of Bermudian musician, Leonard Cann, they grew up in Florida playing a multitude of instruments including violin, trombone and steel drums; however, piano was their first love. After Kimberly’s sold-out 2006 Festival performance, which “transfixed” the audience (Royal Gazette), we are delighted to feature two different recitals: one with both sisters performing together on two pianos on Monday 22 January; and Michelle in a solo recital on Wednesday 24 January.
Michelle began formal music lessons at age 7. She received her BM and MM from the Cleveland Institute of Music and graduated in April 2013 from the Curtis Institute of Music with an Artist Diploma. She performs extensively as a soloist and with various orchestras and chamber ensembles, including a performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with the New Jersey Symphony and the New York premiere of the Piano Concerto by African-American composer Florence Price (1887-1953).
Kimberly made her solo debut at age 12 and her orchestral debut at age 13. She received her MM from the Eastman School of Music and was a Visiting Professor of Music and Artist- in-Residence at Northern Caribbean University in Jamaica. She maintains a thriving teaching studio in Asheville, NC and performs regularly as a soloist and chamber musician.
Don’t miss this opportunity to hear these talented Bermudian pianists in concert!
