Piano and violin duo meagan&amy are praised for their energy, sensitivity, and musical maturity. Pianist Meagan Milatz and violinist Amy Hillis began their partnership in 2011 at the Schulich School of Music of McGill University, even though both hail from Saskatchewan. From the very beginning, the natural chemistry between their two artistic styles led to a musical union. Drawing from their individual strengths—Milatz’s affinity for the fortepiano repertoire and Hillis’s aptitudes for contemporary music—their artistic acumen combines to create programs of interest, intrigue, and informative concert experience for all audiences. The first-ever Pan-Canadian Partnership tour will tour over 40 different Canadian cities during the 2019-20 season.
Pianist Meagan Milatz has appeared as soloist with several Canadian orchestras including Sherbrooke Symphony Orchestra, McGill Symphony Orchestra, and most recently, Edmonton Symphony Orchestra. Her performances have brought her to international stages, including Hilton Head Island, South Carolina; Bruges, Belgium; Gijón, Spain; and Gdańsk, Poland. She is a 2017 Sylva Gelber Music Foundation Award recipient.
