Eric Nyland, classical piano

For over twenty years, actor and pianist Eric Nyland has worked professionally in theatre, film, voiceover, music, and music pedagogy throughout Canada, (and briefly in Italy!). Eric runs a private teaching studio in Calgary and is and is a highly sought-after accompanist and adjudicator. He has studied with Dr. Lillian Upright, Dr. Irena Kofman, and Linda Kundert, and has taken masterclasses from Dr. Jennifer Snow, Dr. Jacques Despres, and Dr. Ludmilla Lazar. He has developed and taught two courses for the Conservatory at Mount Royal University, has served as the musical director for the theatre improvisation company The Kinkonauts and for the long-form theatre improvisation duo One Lions (winner, Best Show at Vancouver International Improv Festival, 2016).

In 2015, Eric appeared as soloist in Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto for the inaugural concert of the Calgary Arts Orchestra, and in 2016 he served as composer, music director, and lead actor in Armin Wiebe’s The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz for the Station Arts Centre. In 2015 Eric was nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Play by the Calgary Theatre Critics’ Awards for his work in the world premiere of Nicholas Billon’s Butcher.

On September 11, 2019, pianist Eric Nyland will return to Pro Arts to perform Beethoven’s Waldstein Sonata, along with Bach’s F# Minor Toccata and Chopin’s B-flat Minor Nocturne (op. 9, no. 1).

This concert is the forth in a series of five Piano Concerts during 2019 generously sponsored by:
