2024 Collaborative Pianists (Accompanists)

Following is a list of collaborative pianists who have indicated they are available for the live 2024 Festival and if they are able to provide recording backtracks for the virtual portion of the Festival. Competitors are, of course, able to use the services of the accompanist of their choice for the Provincial Finals.

Please understand that OMFA presents this list for your reference only. You must make your own arrangements directly with any accompanist regarding suitability for your instrument/voice, and on all financial matters, including any/all rehearsals and for the final performance at the Provincials. To confirm your intent, it is entirely appropriate for the accompanist to ask for a retainer up-front, once the details are settled. The accompanists listed are professional musicians who have agreed to help OMFA competitors during the Provincial Finals competitions. It is the responsibility of the competitor to contact and contract the accompanist, to get a copy of the repertoire to him/her at the earliest date, and to make all other arrangements regarding all financial and rehearsal requirements.

While we at OMFA do our best to make a list of professional collaborative musicians available to competitors, OMFA cannot take responsibility for the quality of their performances, nor for their practices, rates, availability, terms, etc. It is up to the competitor to negotiate any and all terms directly with the accompanist.

Rehearsal locations and contact info will be put on the website in May. Competitors must arrange their own rehearsals with their accompanists ahead of time at these locations.

As a reminder – only competitors (no accompanists) are allowed in the warm-up rooms at the Festival venues.

If you have any questions or if you are an accompanist and wish to be added to this list, please contact us.
