Overview

Join CAMMAC in welcoming the Cheng2Duo back to Ottawa in a Benefit Concert on Sunday, April 14 at 7:30 p.m. at St. Bartholomew’s Anglican Church, 125 MacKay St., Ottawa.

The Benefit Concert will be followed by a reception—an opportunity to meet the artists, cellist Bryan Cheng and pianist Silvie Cheng, and fellow music lovers from Ottawa and beyond, over a glass of wine.

Proceeds from the evening will help support CAMMAC music programs providing opportunities for people of all ages to experience the joy of making music together in a welcoming, supportive environment.

Details

Since debuting at Carnegie Hall in 2011, the Cheng2 Duo (pronounced Cheng Squared Duo) continues to be celebrated by audiences and critics alike for its artistic excellence, generous spirit, and compelling vibrancy. Named one of CBC Music’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30,” the duo’s refreshing approach to making classical music accessible to new audiences of all backgrounds is steeped in a rare balance of infectious joy and enthusiasm in their playing on one hand, and mature, historically informed, and profound interpretations on the other.

The brother-and-sister duo is formed by 21-year-old cellist Bryan Cheng, top prize laureate of the VI International Paulo Cello Competition, and pianist Silvie Cheng, recipient of the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for exceptional promise in piano performance. Bryan is also a Canada Council for the Arts’ Musical Instrument Bank winner – having the use of the circa 1696 Bonjour Stradivarius cello 

This concert, part of the Cheng2 Duo’s North America tour, is their second engagement with CAMMAC, as they performed at the CAMMAC Musical Sundays Festival in 2016.
