Short Biography
Since 2006, the Vernet-Meckler Organ Duet has dazzled audiences across the world, promoting new four-handed repertoire for the organ through brilliant performances and numerous highly acclaimed recordings (including numerous pieces written especially for the duo and numerous world premieres).

Some composers have dedicated pieces especially for them (Julien Bret, Pierre Cholley, Rafihavana Ratovondrahety, Tal Zilber, Philip Robert Buttal, John Carmichael, Charles Balayer, Narcís Bonet, Hervé Lesvenan, Gunnar Idenstam...).
Vernet-Meckler Organ Duet is represented for USA and Canada by Seven Eight Artists in Houston (www.seveneightartists.com), for Europe by Mark Stephen Buhl Artists Management in Vienna (www.msbuhl.com).

Olivier Vernet studied with Gaston Litaize at the Conservatoire National de Région in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, Marie-Claire Alain at the Conservatoire National de Région in Rueil Malmaison, and Michel Chapuis in the class where he won first prize for organ at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris.
He is the titular organist of the Cathedral of Monaco. As such, he played at the grand organ for the princely wedding in 2011. He teaches at the Académie de Musique Prince Rainier III in Monaco and at the Conservatoire National à Rayonnement Régional de Musique in Nice. He is the Artistic Director for the Monaco International Organ Festival and the Mougins Organ Festival.

Holder of a doctorate in Medicine (MD) and a doctorate in Neurosciences (PhD), Cédric Meckler was a medical officer, holding the rank of colonel, at the Institut de Recherche Biomédicale des Armées.
As a Researcher and Hypnotherapist in the Army until 2017, he has used his research and publications to offer a new reading grid of reference methods devoted to piano technique. He practices and explores the field of non-ordinary states of consciousness (hypnosis, meditation, lucid dreaming) that he uses for artistic help, including preparation for the stage. He developed an early passion for the four-hand repertoire, which he regularly played with great diligence (piano duet and pianos duo).
