The Inaugural KH Piano Festival

Last weekend we were treated to an incredible day of music from the very talented KH pianists in Form 1 to Form 6, at the inaugural KH Piano Festival.

The festival was comprised of three categories, Open, Junior, and Senior recitals and students got to perform so impressively on a grand piano from Pianos Plus.

He has given concerts in Ireland, England, the US, Canada and Japan. In 1986 he made his London debut at the Purcell Room and made his Wigmore Hall debut in 1989. He has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland and the RTÉ Concert Orchestra on numerous occasions.

The winners in each category are as follows;

Congratulations to all the performers, category winners, and everyone who came together, especially music teacher Ciarán Kelly, to make the inaugural KH Piano Festival a great success.
