Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe, pianists and graduates of the Juilliard School of Music, have sought to redefine piano four-hand music with their stylish arrangements of popular music and classical repertoire. Their accomplishments are recognized in their EMMY-nominated music video shorts and popular albums. They believe strongly in the communicative potential of music, and their performances, compositions, websites, videos, recordings, and writings serve this mission, bringing joy to people around the world. The Northwest Reverb described this duo as having “swept the audience into a cheering mass of humanity, making a strong case that playing piano is the most fun thing that two people could ever do together.”

The music department will continue to present artists-in-residence in their own concerts during short residencies in which the artists work with student composers and performers.
