Piano Concerto Competition

The Byng Arts Mini School and the Lord Byng Symphony Orchestra are proud to present our annual Byng Arts Piano Concerto Competition

Congratulations to Vera Lu, 2015 winner! 

The 2015 BA Piano Concerto Winner, Vera Lu, performed with the LBSO on February 27, 2015.

All piano players in Byng Arts are encouraged to sign up and compete for the grand prize of $300 (plus a trophy) and the opportunity of being accompanied by the Lord Byng Symphony Orchestra. One movement of the piano concerto will be performed and recorded live with the LBSO during our second concert of the season. There will be two runner-up prizes of $100 as well.

Interested students need to register by filling out the Byng Arts Piano Concerto Competition form found below.

All competitors must prepare one movement of a classical or early romantic piano concerto. If you have any questions about the suitability of a certain piano concerto please e-mail us at smaclennan@vsb.bc.ca

Deadline for applications: October 30, 2015.

All applicants will perform their selections during dates in November (you will be contacted by Dr. MacLennan). The top three performers will then play on the first Friday in December in the Lord Byng Band room where the winner will be decided and the other two celebrated as well.

This is an excellent opportunity for our piano players to keep focused on improving their piano skills even though they play another instrument, sing, act, sculpt, etc.

Start planning now. Let the music begin.
