Gregory Millar - Piano

Gregory Millar

Piano

Canadian pianist Gregory Millar is a versatile performer admired for his rich musical palette, commanding technique and insightful interpretations.  An award-winning chamber musician and solo artist,  Millar’s repertoire encompasses music from the Baroque period through the present century, and especially features works by Canadian composers.  He presented a recital of the 13 Preludes for Piano by Jean Coulthard at the Conference of the Canadian University Music Society in Victoria, BC, and has premiered solo and chamber works by Frank Horvat, Stewart Grant, Colin Eatock and Robert Rival.  Millar appeared as guest soloist with the Mississauga Symphony Orchestra and has given recitals in Montreal, Toronto, Huntsville (ON), Rochester and Cherry Valley (NY).  Additionally, he has participated in hundreds of chamber music and large ensemble performances, notably with the Vancouver Film Orchestra, Esprit Orchestra, Talisker Players of Toronto, Bowdoin International Music Festival, Banff Summer Arts Festival, Huntsville Festival of the Arts, les amis de la musique de Richmond (QC) and Gros Morne Summer Music – where he was an Artist-in-Residence in 2004.  Millar also was heard (but not seen!) in a performance at the Gala Tribute to Prime Minister Jean Chrétien in 2003 – an event which was broadcasted live on national television.

Millar currently performs regularly on the Westwood Concerts series, and as one half of the Millar Piano Duo.

Millar earned a Bachelor of Music at McGill University as a student of Kenneth Woodman.  He continued his studies in Toronto at the Glenn Gould School, where he worked with Duke Trio pianist Peter Longworth and participated in the master classes of André Laplante, John Perry and Leon Fleisher.  Millar went on to earn a Master’s degree with James Parker and Cameron Stowe at the University of Toronto, and recently was conferred the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts  from the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY, under the mentorship of Jean Barr and Douglas Humpherys.
