The girls at Helenswood Academy in Hastings will enjoy a rare treat on Friday 22nd January when they are given a short concert by South Korean born Garam Cho,the joint second prize winner of this year’s Hastings International Piano Concerto Competition.
Garam Cho will be in Hastings to give the competition’s Winter Recital in the Recital
Room at Fairlight Hall on Saturday Morning.
The visit to Helenswood is part of HIPCC’s educational and outreach programme. The aim is to expose local students to classical music and give them the chance to hear world-class young pianists play.
In recent years, HIPCC have developed an active Educational Outreach programme. As well as sending competition winners into local schools to perform, we offer free transportation to students attending the early stages of the competition. Children under 16 accompanied by an adult also can enjoy free entry to early stages and for 2016 we are offering tickets to school teachers for all stages up to and including the semi-finals. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register your interest.
During our popular Priory Meadow shopping centre performances (February 19th-21st, 2016) members of the public and local school children studying the piano are invited to perform for the shoppers on a grand piano situated in the heart of the shopping mall. School teachers can also apply for a limited number of free tickets for our year-round Prizewinner Recital series, please email for availability.
