Pianist Everett Hopfner captivates audiences with his passionate playing, vivid imagination, and engaging personality.


Everett is the winner of the 36th Eckhardt-Gramatté National Music Competition, where he was described by the jury as “a poet, an actor, and a true artist” and “a figure of the future.” A devoted advocate for contemporary music, Everett embraces every opportunity to share new sounds with audiences in Canada and Europe.


Everett is an active soloist, collaborator, and educator. Away from the piano, you can find him cheering on his favourite curling teams and intermittently tweeting composers’ names in capital letters.
