Pianist Andrew Staupe is emerging as one of the distinctive voices of a new generation of pianists. Andrew has appeared as soloist with the Baltimore Symphony, San Diego Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, Houston Symphony, Fort Worth Symphony, Colorado Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, Utah Symphony, Arkansas Symphony, Tallahassee Symphony, and many other orchestras throughout the United States.

An avid chamber musician, Andrew has jammed with legendary vocalist Bobby McFerrin, played Tangos with the Assad Brothers, and has performed with Chee-Yun, Sharon Robinson, Martin Chalifour, Jessica Rivera, Desmond Hoebig, James Dunham, and Joseph Swensen. Andrew has a keen interest in performing new music and has premiered a number of works for solo piano and chamber ensemble by composers Howard Shore, Sarah Kirkland Snider, Christopher Walczak, Christopher Goddard, among numerous others. Other notable performances include concerts at the Kennedy Center and the Library of Congress in Washington DC, and Steinway Hall in New York City. He has performed twice on American Public Media’s “Performance Today,” and on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion” in 2004.

Since 1990, conductor and violinist Trond Saeverud has conducted professional and community orchestras in Denmark, Norway and the USA - most recently in Maine, where he is the founder and artistic director of the Passamaquoddy Bay Symphony Orchestra (see web site and facebook page) with players from New Brunswick, Canada and Washington County, Maine. In 2008, 2009 and 2010, Trond conducted the Bangor Symphony Orchestra’ in several subscription and Pops concerts, including a very successful stage production of West Side Story. (The present music director in Bangor is the Grammywinning conductor, Lucas Richman.)

As a concert violinist, Trond Saeverud has been a soloist with major orchestras in Europe and in the USA, including the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s at the Lincoln Center, New York. He has produced CDs as a soloist with orchestras in Norway and Denmark and regularly premieres new works that are written for him. Trond’s solo CD “Ghosts” received the Norwegian equivalent of a Grammy Award (1997) and his recital CD “Hika” was editor’s choice, Strad Magazine, (2002).
