Elizabeth & Evangeline Canfield, piano
Oswego County’s Classical music series, LaVeck Concerts, presents two of its own Sept. 24 with a concert by the Duo Canfield – Elizabeth and Evangeline — identical twin sisters and piano prodigies who have shared a keyboard since childhood.
The performance is the opening concert of the 2016-17 season for the LaVeck Memorial Concert Series held at the Pulaski Congregational Church, 27 Lake St., Pulaski. The concert is at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, and will be followed by a meet-the-artists reception with free refreshments.
Elizabeth and Evangeline Canfield grew up in Oswego County and now teach piano at their alma mater, SUNY Oswego. They took every class together at Oswego and went on to do the same in grad school at Bowling Green State University, where they received their Masters in Piano Performance.
“We have been playing duets together since we first started taking piano lessons,” Elizabeth Canfield said. “Even as kids it was our dream to become a professional duo piano team.”
Their love of piano duets has inspired them to specialize in performing, teaching and lecturing on the piano duo genre.
“It is a unique experience to have your duet partner as your identical twin and best friend,” Elizabeth said. “Not only is it easier to schedule rehearsals, but we also share a unique connection to each other that comes across in our playing.”
Their Sept. 24 program includes duets by French composers Francis Poulenc and Gabriel Faure, as well as Franz Schubert’s Fantasie in F Minor and Maurice Ravel’s Rapsodie Espagnole.
The LaVeck Concert series honors the memory of Pulaski music teacher Rhea LaVeck. It presents five or six concerts a year with support from the Richard S. Shineman Foundation, CNY Arts, the Pulaski Community Foundation, and individual donations.
