Ventura Music Festival – Ventura CA

MC1 Anderson & Roe Piano Duo

From Executive Director Susan Scott

Welcome to the first edition of Music Connects, where it is our great pleasure to present Anderson & Roe Piano Duo. 

Anderson & Roe made their first Ventura Music Festival appearance in 2016, were so wildly popular we brought them back the next year, and then they opened our 25th anniversary season in 2019. Here they are again, this time opening the Music Connects digital festival. It is a very different circumstance to be sure, but perhaps all the more important given the limitations we’re living with and the power of music to make a difference: to soothe, to lift, to take us someplace else.

Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe formed their musical partnership in 2002 as students at Juilliard and have been captivating audiences all over the world ever since. “Volatile, thrilling and electrifying” are common superlatives associated with the duo. They are heralded for their extraordinary musicality and original arrangements and you will see for yourselves with their Music Connects selection why their self-produced music videos are award-winning.

ENJOY. Continue to take good care.
