Teo Milea invites you to his piano & flute concert "A New Beginning in Toronto", alongside fellow musician Terry Lim. This concert is a journey through complex and colorful melodies of chic sophistication, which will keep the listener guessing what might happen at every twist and turn throughout its fascinating plot.
Teo Milea is a Toronto-based classical crossover pianist and composer whose music speaks to his public in a cinematic way. He is a complex, truly accomplished musician, who works on constantly growing his musicianship. After composing only music for piano for a few years, in 2015 Teo has begun writing music for other instruments, too. Among them: the flute.
Teo Milea is the first pianist in the world invited to play his own music at the NATO Headquarters in Brussels (Belgium) and even more, the first pianist to perform on the stage of The International Ballet Gala in Dortmund (Germany), interpreting his work ’Agony and Ecstasy’.
As new achievements, Teo Milea was the first solo piano artist to reach the Top 4 at Searchlight 2016 contest on CBC Music Canada and the winner of Popular Vote with his solo piano song ‘Irreversible’, and was selected to give the Postludes performance after Ludovico Eidaudi`s concert at the Koerner Hall, in Toronto.
Flutist Terry Lim is also a Toronto-based artist, a charismatic performer with a colorful tone and brilliant artistry.
An enthusiastic chamber musician and soloist, Terry is a founding member and flutist of Canada's first and only professional flute quintet, "Charm of Finches" where they present innovative and refreshing programs.
Terry also played in many of BC based ensembles such as Redshift Society, Vancouver Metropolitan Orchestra, and Burnaby Symphony. Terry has performed in various music festivals and concert series across North America including Domaine Forget, Orford, Toronto Summer Music Festival, The Banff Centre and Pierre Monteux.
This concert is part of the spring Canadian concert series, alongside concerts in Waterloo (May 6, 2017 at The Jazz Room) and Montreal (May 27, 2017 at The Conservatory).
