Willoughby Symphony: Virtuoso

26 November 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm AEDT

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Star Canadian pianist Avan Yu shot to international fame when he won First Prize – along with nine other special awards – at the Sydney International Piano Competition in 2012.

Now in high demand as international soloist, Yu returns to Australia to lead the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra in an unmissable concert of verve and virtuosity.

Opening the concert with Mendelssohn’s overture The Hebrides – inspired by the wild beauty of the Scottish coast – Yu stars as the soloist and director in Mozart’s soulful Piano Concerto No.20, K.466 – one of only two the composer wrote in a minor key – and Beethoven’s brilliant Piano Concerto No.1.

This concert is made possible thanks to a generous donation by Drs Keith and Eileen Ong.
