housands have enthusiastically received keyboardist James J. Myers at prestigious venues throughout Europe and North America. His stylistic breadth and sensitivity, technical prowess, and musical artistry have reached audiences from Berlin to New York, Los Angeles to London, as well as Honolulu, Copenhagen, Geneva, and Budapest. He has shared the stage with leading artistic luminaries of our age, including Christine Brewer, Judith Christin, Jennifer Koh, Robert McDuffie, Chris Thile, and Renée Fleming.

In operatic, symphonic, and choral engagements he has had the distinct pleasure of working with renowned conductors David Angus, Edward Gardner, Matthew Halls, Bernard Labadie, Peter Oundjian, and the late Marvin Hamlisch.
