Elizabeth Polese is enrolled in the Master of Music in Voice Performance at the University of Toronto, where she studies with the renowned teacher Mary Morrison (O.C.). This coming fall, Elizabeth will be performing with the University of Toronto Symphony Orchestra as the winner of the Concerto Competition.
Geoffrey Conquer has just completed his Master of Music degree in Solo Piano Performance at McGill University's Schulich School of Music, where he studied with the famed Georgian pianist Marina Mdivani. Montreal's La Presse newspaper raved about his playing, stating that he "has obviously received the secrets of the great pianistic technique that produced Gilels and Berman. The sonority is massive and at the same time, always clear, musicality is always there, and rubato used wisely.” (translated from French)
