    UTM's piano ensemble is one of the strongest in the country. it was founded by Dr. Allison Nelson, UTM Professor Emerita, who performed around the world with Harry Neal as the Nelson and Neal Piano Duo. The ensemble is currently directed by Dr. Elaine Harriss who for many years performed with Dr. Nelson.

    The UTM Piano Ensemble is the major ensemble for piano students. Regular rehearsals are held Tuesdays and Thursdays 12:00 to 12:50 p.m. and the class is offered for credit. The ensemble performs a minimum of once per semester.

    The group plays a wide variety of literature including music for one piano four hands, two pianos four hands, two pianos eight hands, etc., up to five pianos. The UTM piano ensemble library includes a large repertoire of works originally written for multiple players as well as selected arrangements.

    The ensemble is made up of UTM piano majors and minors. However, non-music students with a good piano background are welcomed and strongly encouraged to contact Dr. Elaine Harriss regarding joining the ensemble.
