They have performed in concert and with orchestra in: Canada, the USA, Italy, Germany, The Netherlands, Spain, Portugal, France, Macedonia, Greece and China. 

They have made recordings for the CBC, ARD(in Germany) and for National Public Radio and have recorded several CDs (CordAria, Arktos, Koch International Classics, Naxos, ARS and Brilliant Classics labels). The married couple received first prize at the International Chamber Music Competition in Caltanissetta, Italy, were laureates of The 4th Murray Dranoff International Two Piano Competition and have performed extensively in Germany as members of the young artists’ roster of Yehudi Menuhin-Live Music Now.

The Bergmanns studied with Arie Vardi at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater, Hannover and with Jean-Eudes Vaillancourt at the Université de Montréal. Elizabeth is Artistic Director of Concerts at the Langley Community Music School and they both are Artistic Directors of White Rock Concerts.

Always adventurous, the married couple combines virtuosic dedication with the instincts of professional entertainers who love their music.
