Master Class with Charles Richard-Hamelin

On the afternoon of November 5th, our company was honoured to host an exclusive Master Class with Charles Richard-Hamelin, acclaimed musician and silver medalist in the 17th International Chopin Piano Competition. Our piano showroom hosted many enthusiast students and parents from the Young Artist Program of the Steinway Society of BC. The children showed much curiosity and admiration for Charles, listening intently as he shared his passion and knowledge. He engaged the audience through an interactive question and answer period about his experiences as a professional classical musician. The questions ranged from, “How do you overcome tension and nervousness on stage?” to “Who is your favourite composer aside from Chopin?” For every question, Charles provided a humorous and insightful answer for the children. The event was a great success and we are thankful to everyone who came out for this exceptional experience.
