Gold Medalist of the 2008 New Orleans International Piano Competition, Spencer Myer has been soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra, the Indianapolis Symphony, the Cape Town and Johannesburg Philharmonics, and Beijing’s China National Symphony Orchestra.  His 2005 recital/orchestral tour of South Africa included a performance of the five piano concerti of Beethoven with the Chamber Orchestra of South Africa.  In December 2014 he made his second solo recital appearance at London’s Wigmore Hall.

In 2004, he captured First Prize in the 10th UNISA International Piano Competition in South Africa, and won the 2006 Christel DeHaan Classical Fellowship from the American Pianists Association.  He was a member of Astral Artists’ performance roster from 2003 to 2010.

An avid chamber musician, he has collaborated with the Jupiter and Pacifica string quartets, the Dorian Wind Quintet, cellists Lynn Harrell and Ralph Kirshbaum, and clarinetist David Shifrin.  His growing reputation as a vocal collaborator since winning the 2000 Marilyn Horne Foundation Competition has lead to partnerships with Cardiff Singer of the World winner Nicole Cabell and Wigmore Hall Song Competition winner Martha Guth, among others.

Spencer Myer is a graduate of the Oberlin Conservatory, The Juilliard School, and Stony Brook University, and is currently a member of the Piano and Collaborative Piano faculty of Boston’s Longy School of Music of Bard College.  Since 2017 he has released four CDs on the Steinway & Sons label — Piano Rags of William Bolcom, and three discs with cellist Brian Thornton, encompassing repertoire of Brahms, Debussy and Schumann.

Spencer Myer is a Steinway Artist.  www.spencermyer.com
