This year the adjudicator for the annual piano competition was Costas Fotopoulos ARAM, MMus, BMus, LRAM. He made discerning and helpful comments to all of our twenty-six competitors. The overall standard of performance was uniformly good, and in a supportive atmosphere, generated by a sensitive audience, we relished the magic that surrounds the Steinway when it is played with confidence and musicality. In the beginners class the winner was Edie Bailey (L4) and the runner-up was Natalia Smithers (U4). In the intermediate class the winner was India Mackay (M5) and the runners-up were Winwill Costan (U5) and Laura Chan(U6). In the advanced class the winner was Kitty Ma(U5) and the three runners up were Olivia Impey(L6), Chloe Lam(L6) and Joanna Weatherley(U5). Many congratulations!
