Leanne Regehr and Janna Olson, piano duet
Leanne Regehr and Janna Olson met during their graduate studies at the University of Alberta in 2002, and a similar passion for pedagogy and collaboration resulted in a deep friendship. That friendship, combined with shared artistic and teaching philosophies, and a love of the piano duet repertoire led to performances as the Regehr-Olson Duo. Their programs are diverse, often feature Canadian composers, and highlight the joy of music-making.
Originally from Three Hills, Alberta, Janna Olson holds a Masters in Piano Performance and Pedagogy from the University of Alberta where she studied with Janet Scott-Hoyt. She is on the faculty of the Gordon Institute for Music Learning and is passionate about connecting piano pedagogy with recent research on how the musical mind works. Janna currently resides in Edmonton teaching privately and as a sessional instructor at The King’s University.
Leanne Regehr is a versatile pianist who is widely recognized for her intuitive ability to collaborate with other musicians across an extensive range of repertoire. She completed her Doctor of Music in Piano Performance at Northwestern University and explored further studies at the Banff School of Fine Arts, the Universitat Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Aspen Music Festival.
Currently based in Edmonton where she serves on the faculties of the University of Alberta and The King’s University, Leanne is also the pianist for Edmonton Opera and the Richard Eaton Singers.
