Eric Nyland, classical piano

A pianist and actor, Eric Nyland is the musical director for the long-form theatre improvisation duo One Lions (winner, Best Show at Vancouver International Improv Festival). Recently he served as composer, music director, and starred in Armin Wiebe’s The Moonlight Sonata of Beethoven Blatz for the Station Arts Centre in Rosthern, SK. He has held solo concerts in Edmonton and Calgary, performing through the National Music Centre’s Street Sounds series and the Pro Arts @Noon Concert Series, as well as appearing as soloist in Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto for the inaugural concert of the Calgary Arts Orchestra.

In addition to running a private teaching studio, Eric works as a piano adjudicator for student festivals, and has developed two courses for the Conservatory at Mount Royal University: Introductory Keyboard for Adults: Play-by-Ear/Improvisation, and Reading Standard Notation. He is the winner of the 2013 Jack Friedenberg Memorial Scholarship for pianists, and in 2015 was nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Play by the Calgary Theatre Critics’ Awards for his work in the world premiere of Butcher by governor-general award-winning playwright Nicolas Billon. In July, Eric will travel to Cremona, Italy (birthplace of the Stradavarius violin), to engage in a three week intensive program of study in solo and chamber piano performance. This study program is supported in part by the Calgary Arts Development Authority.
