A&R Duo


Steinway Pianists Arianna Korting and Robin Giesbrecht met at the Juilliard School as prodigious individual artists, but soon found themselves performing together to rousing ovations wherever two pianos were on stage, from concert halls in Europe to East Asia and throughout the United States. Increasingly in demand for their combined brilliance and marvelous technique since their debut at the Hamburg Philharmonic Hall, their recent performances include debuts at the Rising Stars Series and Salon Series in the Hamptons, as well as in the Philippines.

An award-winning and avid chamber musician, Arianna was named one of the Rembrandt Young Artists at the Rembrandt Chamber Music Competition in Chicago and received the Live From Lincoln Center “Outstanding Student Performance Award”.

Robin Giesbrecht was awarded the Vladimir Horowitz scholarship at the Juilliard School as a student of Jerome Lowenthal and Joseph Kalichstein, where he received his undergraduate degree. He recently graduated from the Yale School of Music with a Master’s degree where he studied with Peter Frankl.

Edie Carey

Chicago-based singer-songwriter Edie Carey is known for her unmistakable, soulful voice, her intelligent, heart-grabbing songs, but perhaps most especially for her warm, engaging presence on – and off – stage. As much a part of her show as the music itself, Carey’s wry and often self-mocking humor makes audiences feel as though they have just spent an evening with a very close friend.

Her latest offering, ‘Til The Morning, a joint effort with award-winning singer-songwriter Sarah Sample, was funded entirely by their loyal and steadily growing legion of fans, as were Carey’s previous three records. Produced by Scott Wiley, the duo’s CD features appearances by cellist and vocalist Mai Bloomfield (Jason Mraz, Raining Jane), violist Aaron Ashton (Peter Cetera, Smokey Robinson) and Sam Cardon (Composer, My Girlfriend’s Boyfriend, Olympic Winter Games).

Bill Mize

Grammy-winning guitarist Bill Mize is a son of Tennessee and a fitting representative of his state’s rich musical heritage. His critically lauded fingerstyle compositions are fluid and intricate, and their delivery masterful. One suspects an influential teacher, and one would be right. “I received most of my musical education from a cheap Zenith radio,” says Mize, who as a child drifted off to sleep to the decidedly non-sleepy lullabies emanating from Nashville’s WLAC and WSM and Knoxville’s WNOX.

A special exhibition of works by Elizabeth St-Hilaire.
