“Variations on a Theme of a Steinway”

Who could possibly forget last year’s HHIPC Finals when 18-year old Tristan Teo “wowed” the crowd with his extraordinary performance of Rachmaninoff’s Concerto No. 3?  You now have the unique opportunity to hear Tristan again as he performs works by Ravel, Kapustin and Liszt.

The League of the Hilton Head Symphony Orchestra is pleased to present Canadian pianist, Tristan Teo, 2016 HHIPC Second Prize winner, in a solo recital to benefit the Hilton Head International Piano Competition with a reception to follow.  Please join us in support of our world-renowned piano competition!
