Join us for a whistle stop tour of some of the greatest composers of piano music heard in the Adrian Boult Hall over the last 30 years. Performances will be given by a wide range of our students from undergraduates embarking on their careers to those on the Advanced Postgraduate Diploma  who are already undertaking professional engagements. This chronological experience of keyboard music counts down to the recent past, as we celebrate the hall and the pianists and composers that have graced its stage.

Pianists: Yenting Wang, Connor Wilcox, I-Hsuan Peng, Stavroula Thoma, Domonkos Csabay, Gyorgy Hodoszo, Arthur Bocaneanu, Ken Lim, Eden Walker, Simone Damiani
