Sicilian Success

Sicilian Success

Year 11 pupil Claire is an accomplished pianist who competes at an international level. This summer she participated in Sicily International Piano Festival & Competition.

The festival which took place from the 9-17 July 2023 offers participants opportunities to perform in public settings and to work closely with internationally-known faculty from Europe, Asia and USA in both individual lessons and masterclasses. Festival performance venues include some of the most prestigious landmarks of UNESCO's heritage in the city of Noto, such as the Palazzo Nicolaci and Teatro "Tina Di Lorenzo".

Claire competed in the Under 19 age category against 30 competitors. This was following an online preliminary selection round. Competitors travelled from across the world to participate. 

Congratulations to Claire on winning 1st Prize, an incredible achievement!
