In 2017 the School acquired All-Steinway School status. This celebratory event features the new Steinway concert grand piano in a performance by Steinway Artist Peter Donohoe.
Since his unprecedented success as Silver Medal winner of the 1982 7th International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Peter Donohoe has built an extraordinary world-wide career, encompassing a huge repertoire and over forty years’ experience as a pianist, as well as continually exploring many other avenues in music-making. He is acclaimed as one of the foremost pianists of our time, for his musicianship, stylistic versatility and commanding technique.
"I cannot imagine a living pianist capable of improving upon Donohoe’s outstanding artistry."
