Winter Recap / Spring Forward by Elizabeth Roe

After a very busy winter of concerts and travels across the US (see highlights below), the Anderson & Roe Piano Duo will return to its proverbial roots, with performances in the duo's "birthplace" of New York City and also in Hartford (the midway point between Elizabeth and Greg's former residences in Northampton and New Haven, respectively). They will perform in the Hartford Symphony Orchestra's subscription series May 9-12, with Elizabeth featured in Gershwin's classic Jazz Age paean to New York, Rhapsody in Blue. The following week, the A&R Duo will appear in a special event for the Young Patrons of Lincoln Center.
