In a special event at Concert 3 on August 23, Theme & Variations Foundation Award recipient Tony Lee will be performing after two young pianists. Tony has been studying in Belgium and Moscow during the year.

The Emerging Artists Series is an initiative from Theme & Variations Piano Services which aims to give promising young pianists the exciting opportunity to prepare and perform a solo piano recital in front of a live audience. Solo performance opportunities outside of eisteddfods and examinations for young pianists are rare, especially for high school level students. The more a pianist can experience performing live, the better musicians they will become.
