Holding graduate degrees from the University of Toronto and University of Michigan, Gregory is an acclaimed classical pianist whose repertoire spans five centuries, and who has worked with many living composers, including Steve Reich, Phillip Glass, Philippe Leroux, Kaija Saariaho and Frederic Rzewski. His recent work has seen him appear in places from the National Arts Centre in Ottawa to legendary techno club Berghain in Berlin, Pop Montreal to Festival International de Musique Actuelle de Victoriaville and NXNE to the Wordless Music Series at the Lincoln Centre. Gregory is the artistic director of the acclaimed new music group Toca Loca, a frequent guest conductor of Continuum Contemporary Music, CONTACT and Arraymusic, and contemporary music curator at Toronto’s Music Gallery. A Dora-nominated music director, he most recently worked on John Beckwith’s Crazy to Kill (2011) and on the premieres of Cold Spring at New York's EMPAC (2011) and Native Earth's Giiwedin (2010) as well as XXX Live Nude Girls!
