Glen Montgomery, piano

Pianist Glen Montgomery is a highly respected musician who maintains an active career performing and teaching. In addition to his faculty work, Montgomery also travels extensively, performing as a soloist and in collaboration with chamber musicians. (His recording with cellist Denis Brott of the Brahms sonatas on Analekta has received worldwide acclaim.) Montgomery's early music development began with studies on the clarinet with his father and Paul Brodie. At age 11, he was the youngest member of the Toronto Youth Orchestra, has toured Ontario with the North York Woodwind, and participated in the inaugural tour of the Calgary Youth Orchestra. Studying with his principal piano teacher John R. DuVal in Calgary, Montgomery's first successes as a pianist were winning the Alberta Prize Winner's competition (age16), playing with the Edmonton Symphony; the Registered Music Teachers' tour (age 18); and placing second in the Canadian Music Competition's Stepping Stone (age 18). He has performed frequently on CBC and has recorded for Icelandic Radio and television, Belorus television, and PBS radio in the United States. He has performed with symphonies in Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, Vancouver, San Diego, Cincinnati, Winnipeg, and others.
