Three students of the Bachelor of Music programme were recently given the opportunity to perform at a piano concert in front of a European audience. The marathon concert, named MARATONA HONG KONG, with a focus on piano études, was the first of a series organized by the Guiseppe Verdi Theatre in Pordenone, northeast Italy, on 10 February. The students, He Liyan (Year 3), Piao Xingji (Year 2) and Zhang Yue (Year 2), showcased the excellence of the Academy as they make the evening a memorable occasion for the audience.
The students are taught by the Academy’s Head of Keyboard Studies Professor Gabriel Kwok, who was with his students on the evening.
The concert was attended by music lovers in Pordenone as well as representatives from the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in Brussels. It was well received with extensive media coverage in the local press. In addition, Radio 3 Rai, a major classical music radio channel in Italy, arranged for the broadcast of the concert to cities in Europe.
