Cowan Concert: A Special Event


Reporter Jeff Hansel interviews Marlow and Fran Cowan after their performance

Marlow and Fran Cowan returned to Mayo Clinic campus in Rochester this week. You likely remember them as the couple whose piano duet became a YouTube sensation last year, and led to their appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America. As part of their visit, they offered to provide a short concert during the noon hour yesterday in the Landow Atrium of the Gonda building.

He just turned 91 last week, and she’ll be 85 in July. Below is a reprise of the number that led to world-wide attention for this couple. To see the entire performance, go to this playlist on our Mayo Clinic YouTube channel.

    I saw this couple on KCCI-TV in Des Moines, IA. Apparently, they play at a local nursing home in Des Moines. What a wonderful talent and how wonderful that they share it. Thank you.
