Our poster this year has just being released!!! Blue is our theme color because it resembles the breeze and waves of the ocean in summer, same as the flow in music.

Press coverage of our artistic director Ching-Yun Hu and one of our faculty Ursula Oppens from Inquirer.

"Philadelphia Young Pianists’ Academy (Aug. 8-15). The faculty-recital part of this year’s crash-course for keyboard artists opens Aug. 8 with an all-Rachmaninoff recital by Ching-Yun Hu that includes the Sonata No. 2 in B Flat minor (Op. 36) and complete Etude Tableaux (Op. 39).

Renowned new music champion Ursula Oppens picks up the Rachmaninoff theme with an Aug. 13 piano recital that covers some of the Etudes (Op. 33) before moving on to more contemporary territory: Elliott Carter’s Two Diversions, John Corigliano’s Winging It, and Conlon Nancarrow’s Two Canons for Ursula.

Both at the Curtis Institute of Music. (347-324-8967, www.pypa.info)"

此外,藝術總監胡教授正式成為深圳藝校客座教授!黃校長百忙中撥空親自頒發證書,陳蘭主任及全體鋼琴組老師也一同前往參與,充分展現藝校團結、敬業的精神。
