Queensland Conservatorium students are currently competing in the Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, which seeks to encourage young pianists at the threshold of their professional lives.
Students Ayesha Gough, Aaron Liu, Alex Raineri, Sine Winther and Jaein Im and alumnus Roger Cui are finalists in the competition which seeks to encourage young pianists to develop their performance skills, increase their public profile and prepare themselves for professional careers.
The Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition was established in 1999 in memory of the late Professor Lev Vlassenko, world-renowned international concert pianist and teacher.
The competition is the only major national piano event in Australia that mirrors the requirements of an international competition, including demanding repertoire, national and international jury members, with all rounds open to the public, and the final concerto round performed with a major symphony orchestra (The Queensland Orchestra).
