Tony Lee – Concert Pianist
Hello Ara and Nyree,
Just writing to express my gratitude for not only the immensely generous donation in prize money from Theme & Variations but for the access to instruments the past 2 weeks otherwise impossible in any competition & festival worldwide.
Steinway & Sons needs no introduction and the time and dedication you have put into tuning and maintaining these instruments has been most admirable.
No one recognises this more than the competitors, in a sense our success more often than not can depend on simply on the instrument we perform with.
Lastly, I wish to say thank you for the emphasis Theme & Variations have applied to promoting younger artists (in various Fundraisers and of course the Emerging Artists Series for eg) I think the only thing left really is a National Piano Competition!
Look forward to our next meeting.
