Piano Audition

Academic Year 2022-2023

Since it was announced last November 2021 that Louis Lortie will be stepping down from his role as Master in Residence at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel at the end of the 2021–2022 season, the management will ensure, for the following season,  that a smooth transition is put in place with the interests of the young pianists in the section at heart, relying on associated Masters like Avedis Kouyoumdjian and Frank Braley and some guests masters to be announced.
