Meagan Milatz


Canadian pianist Meagan Milatz is quickly emerging as one of the most sought-after collaborative artists in the country. She regularly shares the stage with top international musicians including Andrew Wan, concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra; Stefan Dohr, Principal Horn of the Berlin Philharmonic; and cellist Matt Haimovitz with whom she was featured in two concerts in 2021 for the Ladies Morning Musical Club series in Montreal. In 2022, she was named co-artistic and executive director of Concerts noncerto, along with cellist Cameron Crozman. 

Meagan’s chamber music experiences are far-reaching, with highlights from 2022 including performances with Cho-Liang Lin, Peter Hanson, Mark Fewer, Pablo Hernán Benedí, Steven Dann, and tubist Øystein Baadsvik, among others. She recently launched a brand-new violin-and-piano duo partnership, “Duo M”, alongside Violaine Melançon, renowned violinist and founding member of the Peabody Trio. In May 2022, she appeared in concert in Spain with Kai Gleusteen, concertmaster of the Orchestra del Gran Teatre del Liceu of Barcelona, and for the 2021/22 season she was named pianist of Trio Fibonacci, a long-standing Montreal-based trio internationally recognized for its interpretations of the entire piano trio repertoire. Her duo “meagan&amy” with violinist Amy Hillis launched onto the scene with their debut album Roots in 2019 before embarking on a 50-concert, Canada-wide tour as winners of the first-ever Pan-Canadian Partnership Recital Tour offered by Jeunesses Musicales Canada, Debut Atlantic, and Prairie Debut. Meagan’s collaborative performances are regularly broadcast on CBC/Radio-Canada.    

Chosen as one of CBC’s “30 hot Canadian classical musicians under 30,” Meagan has appeared as a soloist alongside orchestras such as the Edmonton, Regina, Sherbrooke, and McGill Symphonies. She was top prize winner in the Shean Piano Competition, CFMTA National Piano Competition, and Canadian Music Competition as well as a recipient of a Sylva Gelber Music Foundation Award. She is also grateful for the support of the Canada Council for the Arts.  

Meagan began her studies in Saskatchewan with Cherith Alexander and holds a Master’s degree from McGill University studying piano with Ilya Poletaev and fortepiano with Tom Beghin. She has also studied collaborative repertoire under the tutelage of Philip Chiu. Enthusiastic about helping the next generation of young musicians, she is on faculty as a collaborative pianist at the Domaine Forget International Music Festival and is also a faculty member of the “Session sonates violon et piano” of Camp Musical du Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean. 

Meagan lives in Montreal where she loves biking, visiting the city’s numerous libraries, and enjoying the occasional tasty pastry.
