Brotherly love sparks incredible music when two talented siblings combine their skills on the piano. Vancouver’s hometown heroes Jon Kimura Parker and James Parker studied their craft at the Vancouver Academy of Music and the University of British Columbia, and have played with every major orchestra in Canada.

A highly charismatic performer, Jon Kimura has been lavishly praised by critics for his superior technique and expressive passion, as well as his sense of humour and natural showmanship. James is a two-time Juno Award winner and is acclaimed for his work with the Gryphon Trio.

With a recital program that includes Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances and works by Mozart and B.C. composer Alexina Louie, these extraordinary pianists are guaranteed to arouse your curiosity, amaze you with their artistry, and, of course, entertain you.

This season, the National Arts Centre Orchestra celebrates the many talents of acclaimed B.C. pianist Jon Kimura Parker as its first artist-in-residence. He will play an integral role in the orchestra’s performances, education outreach, and BC Scene.

This concert will be broadcast on Tempo and Sunday Afternoon in Concert on CBC Radio 2 (103.3 FM in Ottawa)
