The Parker Wilson Duo is a piano and voice ensemble featuring vocalist Aubrey Wilson and pianist Teri Parker. Their extensive repertoire – from classical pieces to jazz and popular music
from the 1940s until today – makes the duo a tasteful accompaniment to every wedding’s atmosphere.
After playing a few of their favourite songs together during a happenstance meeting in 2014, Teri Parker and Aubrey Wilson formed a working band. Since then, the musicians have played over
100 weddings, as well as countless parties, jazz clubs, and festivals. Performing in a style that is acoustically subtle without sacrificing toe-tapping beats, the Parker Wilson Duo suits both
wedding ceremonies and cocktail hours.
Teri Parker is a jazz pianist, keyboardist and composer based in Toronto. She leads her own band, the Teri Parker Quartet, and co-leads the Parker Abbott Trio with pianist Simeon Abbott.
Both of these groups play frequently in jazz clubs in Toronto and feature all original music. She is also a member of several other bands including the Parker Wilson Duo featuring vocalist
Aubrey Wilson (jazz standards) and Idioteque (Canada’s finest Radiohead tribute band). As a composer Teri actively writes for her own bands, and in 2015 received a Toronto Arts Council
grant to write new music for her quartet, which can be heard on their debut album In the Past, released in fall of 2017.
Aubrey Wilson is a jazz vocalist based in Toronto and Hamilton. She is a graduate of the Mohawk College Vocal Jazz Performance program, where she studied under esteemed musicians
such as Carol McCartney and Mim Adams, and she has been actively involved in the performance arts world since childhood. Aubrey’s jazz outfit, the Aubrey Wilson Quartet, has
performed at festivals and clubs across Southern Ontario since 2012.
