An active recitalist, he performs extensively, including a Debut Atlantic tour of Eastern Canada and three trips to Russia.

Born in Dipper Harbour, a small fishing village in New Brunswick, Canada, Thompson has a personal interest in championing the works of Canada’s major composers, including Brian Cherney, Jose Evangelista, and Jean Papineau-Couture.

He recently released a recording of piano music by Quebec-based composers on the McGill label. Thompson studied at McGill University in Montreal, working with Marina Mdivani, a former student of Emil Gilels.

He was honored with two of Canada’s most prestigious fellowships to pursue his doctoral studies, and in 2005 earned a Doctorate of Music in Piano Performance.

He studied organ performance at McGill with Dr. John Grew and is also a concertizing organist and the Director of Music at First Presbyterian Church in Charlottesville,Virginia.
