This year’s recital was certainly a memorable one! On April 8th, 2016, the year end recital was held in Tabaret Hall on the University of Ottawa campus located in downtown Ottawa. We had five schools in attendance this year: Manor Park, Queen Elizabeth, Vincent Massey, Connaught and York Street. For those who would like to see what we got up to during the recital, we have some performances recorded and posted on YouTube and photos taken for the students to share with family and friends for lasting memories.
More pictures from the recital at Tabaret Hall at the University of Ottawa can be found on our Facebook page at Heart of the City Piano - Ottawa.
At the end of the recital, we had a surprise eight-hand piano performance on not one… but two pianos! Smetana’s Rondo for 2 Pianos and 8 hands was performed by four of our executive members, Yen-Yen Gee, Curtis Quan, Clara Lockhart and Valeria Dimitrova.
On behalf of HCPP Ottawa, we would like to thank all of our volunteers and teachers who have put their time and care into sharing music and inspiring with children in our city. We would also like to thank the Kiwanis Circle K club for funding our program and to the University of Ottawa Music Department for allowing us to host our annual piano recital in the beautiful Tabaret Hall. We look forward to next year as HCPP Ottawa continues to teach music for over 10 years!
